Mike Fussell and David Rogers are scheduled to speak at the Houston Association of Professional Landmen’s (HAPL) 48th Annual Technical Workshop on Tuesday, April 18.  They will give a “Multi-State Case Law Update” and address cases covering issues that attorneys and landmen practicing in the area of oil, gas and mineral law should be aware of no matter the basin or state in which they are working.  The cases covered will be applicable for in-house landmen, field landmen and attorneys rendering advice on the issues covered including the definition of production in paying quantities under a mineral lease in order to maintain a lease and the proper descriptions needed for a mineral transfer. Mike and David will also discuss the differences among states concerning certain issues such as whether minerals may be held in perpetuity and the surface use rights of mineral owners among other issues.
