Here's a description of what the lease analysts do at our company. I'm actually a landman but hopefully this will be helpful:
•Analysis, set up and update for leases, contracts, agreements, rights-of-ways, farmouts/farmins, joint operating agreements and other land documents. Review ownership data and title. Obtains necessary information for lease and contract set up in land system.
•Monitors lease and contract obligations and works with the Landman and Senior Lease Analysts to obtain proper authorization for payment and/or action.
•Update land system to reflect on going assignments or conveyances. Maintain leases and contracts with changes in lease status.
•Works closely with GIS Analyst to review, document and resolve tract issues.
•Works closely with Division Order and Landman counterpart on identifying leases and contracts in wells and units. Also works closely with other Analyst and/or Landman on title issues. May assist in preparing necessary documents to perfect title
•Continue to research, analyze and maintain leases, lands and contracts to ensure consistent reporting data and accurate maps.
• Assists senior analysts, supervisor and manager with special projects as needed. Handles moderately complex projects.
•Maintains professional and technical knowledge by attending educational workshops, reviewing professional publications, and establishing personal networks.
As far as salary, if it's entry level, I would guess it is somewhere around $35-40K.
