"Art took our rudimentary survey of oil and gas production and, in a matter of days, transformed it into a rigorous, in-depth analysis, the likes of which has never been done before for Oklahoma’s tribal lands.

Art's analysis will contribute significantly to public understanding of tribal sovereignty, land rights, and the state’s fossil fuel industry. Throughout the process, Art was kind, professional, and prompt. We could not have asked for a better partner to guide us through the murky depths of the Woodford shale!"
