Course Description

Oil and gas leases are one of the most dynamic areas of oil and gas law today.  Landowners have become far more savvy than they were even twenty years ago and oil companies have been forced to acquiesce to much more landowner-friendly leases. Although many attorneys and oil companies are still resisting it, the days of form leases are over.  

 

Join oil and gas law attorney, Josh Stein, as he describes common sources of error and ambiguity which arise in poorly drafted oil and gas leases (including top leases).  He also reveals how best to serve your client—whether it’s an oil company or a landowner—during the leasing process.

 

Learning Objectives:

I.   Understand interactions between different lease clauses

II.  Grasp Tips for drafting leases and top leases

III. Exploit or correct common drafting errors
