This course on basic provisions of an oil and gas lease will provide an analysis of each of the basic terms included in most U.S. oil and gas leases including:

  • Granting,
  • Savings,
  • Mother Hubbard,
  • Habendum,
  • Royalty,
  • Delay-rental,
  • Force majeure and other clauses.

The analysis includes examination of typical lease language through a sample lease complete with helpful annotations. In addition, examples of the application and impact of each clause is provided through real life examples gleaned from my many years of experience in the industry.

Whether negotiating the oil and gas lease or reviewing its terms after the fact, this course is a MUST for every land professional but specifically for landmen, lease and title analysts and division order analysts. This course is also a MUST for any mineral owner seeking to protect their rights during the negotiation process by making sense of the legalese in the lease agreement or to understand the lease terms in an older lease.
