Haynesville Shale 101: Notarizing Oil & Gas Leases

Subscribing Witness
There has been a lot of confusion in forums in The Times and on various websites as to whether or not a notary public must witness your signature when you sign an oil & gas lease.
The answer is no.
In most cases, one of the people who witnesses your signature acts as a subscribing witness. This means that he or she presents the document to a notary public, verifies their identity as a witness, and state that they were present and saw you sign the document.
For more information and to see copies of actual documents go to Haynesville Shale Newslink.
