Join us for a discussion of the high-dollar oil and gas royalty issues facing producers.

The discussion will address: 

  • typical post-production operations, marketing arrangements, and lease language that impact royalty payment;
  • how plaintiffs construe lease language and implied duties to market to attack royalty payment on improper deductions, marketing and valuation, fuel gas, and interest;
  • issues with certifying royalty underpayment class actions; and 
  • practices for royalty payment.
