Townsquare Media

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has launched a new program for students interested in land management related to oil, gas and mining.

UW’s Professional Land Management program is one of just nine in North America accredited by the American Association of Professional Landmen.

This fall, 13 students are enrolled in the program, developed in partnership with the Wyoming Association of Professional Landmen and the energy industry.

Don Roth is the program’s director and deputy director for academics in UW’s School of Energy Resources.
He says there’s a tremendous demand for landmen.

Landmen determine land ownership and availability for mineral leasing; negotiate agreements with landowners for drilling and production rights; draft and administer contracts with the assistance of corporate counsel; coordinate workflow with geologists and engineers; and ensure compliance with government regulations.
