Topics will include post-production cost deduction, the significance of a valuation point, failure to pay royalty claims, underpayment of royalty claims, and overpayment of royalty claims.


Ryan Kirby – Kirby, Mathews & Walrath, PLLC – “Anatomy of the Confusing and Difficult Oil & Gas Lease Provisions”

This presentation will review and analyze the various provisions of the oil and gas lease with an emphasis on those that are the most confusing and difficult.


Alex Kuiper – Kuiper, Wheat & Associates – “The Mineral Receivership, Texas' Solution to the Unknown, Undivided Mineral Interest Owner”

A Receivership is a legal remedy whereby a person (i.e. a “receiver”) is appointed by the court to take custody of the assets of another (E.g. an unknown mineral interest owner), and hold those assets until the other person is found or otherwise restored to a state of financial responsibility.  This mechanism is useful and important to E&P companies to obtain leases, ratifications, and other instruments from individuals it is unable to locate.


Jennifer Hardin – ConocoPhillips Company – “Ethics & Antitrust Concerns”

During this session, we will review: (1) antitrust requirements relevant to public bidding and dealings with landowners; and (2) relevant parts of the AAPL Code of Ethics.  We will use the enforcement actions against Chesapeake and Gunnison/SGI as case studies.
