In many jurisdictions, lawyers are likely to encounter oil and gas issues even if they do not consider themselves to be oil and gas lawyers.  This webinar will cover such questions as:  Who owns the right to explore for oil and gas on your client’s land?  How do states resolve disputes in which a landowner alleges that oil and gas are being drained from beneath his land by a well on a neighbor’s property?  What is “pooling,” and is it different from “unitization”?  What is a “split estate” and what are the respective rights and duties of the “surface” and “mineral” owner?  How do mineral leases work and what clauses are critical?  How are royalties calculated?

Duration: 75 minutes
