Developments in Texas Oil and Gas Law Pertaining to Mineral Ownership
Ms. Kopecki’s presentation will cover some recent developments in Texas oil and gas law pertaining to mineral ownership, with an examination of cases involving retained acreage provisions, covenants running with the land, fixed versus floating royalties, and will evaluate whether a nonparticipating royalty interest that states the royalty is “free of cost in the pipe line” is subject to postproduction costs and whether a lessor can receive a royalty based on an amount greater than the gross proceeds received by the lessee.
