Abstract: Selected Recent Developments in Oil and Gas Law for Geologists, Engineers, and Geophysicists


Oil and gas law is constantly changing. Legislatures are currently in session in both Oklahoma and in Arkansas. These Legislatures write new laws and rewrite old ones. Court decisions interpret both these laws and common law legal principles. All these changes impact our industry in ways which we all need to understand and appreciate.

The paper will survey selected recent developments in oil and gas law of interest to geologists, engineers, and geophysicists. Because many of these developments have yet to occur, it is not yet possible for the author to predict the exact content of the paper. The only certainties are that there will be changes which will affect our industry and that this paper is designed to help you stay abreast of these changes.
