Allocation Wells and What Makes Them Different

Description: Operators can, for now, get permits for horizontal 
allocation wells without getting consent of all mineral interest owners. The growth of horizontal drilling has been a factor in the new rules. While once it was necessary for operators to get sign-offs from all lessors if the operator wanted to pool leases to unitize it for drilling a well that extends across multiple tracts, that’s no longer the case. What does this mean for royalty owners? For operators? It’s a new world for both.

Storm Water Pollution & Environmental Compliance

Description: What has been happening in Odessa, the Permian 
Basin, and Texas with all this environmental and storm water stuff? Is it real? Does it apply to any other places you might work? What can  we do in the short term and long term to deal with it? The presentation Mike James will be bringing addresses aspects of environmental compliance, storm water pollution prevention plans and permits, inspecting your facility, and preparing for inspection by a regulatory agency.
