While title examination and curative, lease acquisition, abstracting and due diligence form the backbone of our business, AELS offers a wide range of fully customizable services to meet clients’ needs. Among these are lease management services, suspense fund resolution, seismic support, expert witness testimony, negotiation and preparation of business-to-business agreements, and exhibit preparation for commission hearings. 

Steadfast in our approach and exacting in our standards, Alfson Energy Land Services is committed to providing superior results and fostering sustainable relationships with our clients. Our interest lies in bringing on more projects, not billing more hours.

The Alfson Difference

As a mineral owner, you play an important role in America’s complex and robust energy industry. With exploration and development reaching new heights in the Rocky Mountain region, we understand that you have options, and hope you’ll entrust your minerals to Alfson Energy Land Services.

At AELS, we do not add finders’ fees, acreage mark-ups or royalty burdens to our leases, nor do we lease for speculation purposes. Instead, we are committed to working with the best operators in the industry – those who are actively developing minerals.

Our experienced, professional landmen are happy to serve as a resource throughout the leasing process, and will treat you with the dignity and respect that you deserve. That’s the Alfson difference.

National Resources

We’re happy to provide the following resources for those who would like to know more about the domestic energy industry, including both hydrocarbons and renewables.

A Tradition of Excellence for Today's Energy Industry

In 1951, oil was discovered in North Dakota’s Tioga Field. A year later, fresh out of business school, Bruce Alfson bought his first oil and gas lease, establishing not only a career, but a legacy.

In the decades that followed, the Alfson name was among the most trusted in North Dakota, recognized as one of the premier independent oil and gas brokers by both operators and lessors alike.

In 2004, Susan Alfson founded Alfson Energy Land Services, returning to her roots after a successful career in business operations and management across a variety of industries. Her vision was to honor and expand her father’s legacy by providing the energy industry in the Rocky Mountain region with custom, integrative solutions to their land related needs.

Initially founded to support operators developing their known reserves, our focus was on risk mitigation related to mineral title issues. Today, we are proud to offer a full spectrum of land services, including title examination and curative, landman's abstracts, due diligence, lease acquisition, photography and mapping.


At Alfson Energy Land Services, we're confident that by providing our team with work that is challenging, fulfilling, and in balance with their personal lives, they will consistently exceed our clients' expectations by producing the highest quality work in the industry.
