Landman's legal handbook : a practical guide to mineral leasing
This comprehensive title takes a close look at the many legal aspects of mineral leasing, a rather arcane area of law. The authors start by looking at general rules related to the recording of instruments that affect real property and then move on to oil and gas leases. Subsequent chapters cover mineral leases, title examination, leasehold estates, probate and succession, and the authors end with a look at unconventional oil and gas drilling. While not one's first pick for leisurely reading, this title is a great resource for oil and gas law practitioners.
