Ryan Clinton's Paper on Retained-Acreage Clauses Presented at Advanced Oil, Gas & Energy Resources Law Conference

Ryan Clinton's continuing-legal-education paper on oil-and-gas retained-acreage clauses was presented at the 34th Annual State Bar of Texas Advanced Oil, Gas & Energy Resources Law Conference in Houston, Texas in September 2016.

Ryan's paper---co-authored by Davis, Gerald & Cremer shareholder Jad Davis---discusses the purpose and history of retained-acreage clauses in Texas oil-and-gas leases and the mechanics of retained-acreage clauses.  In addition, the paper analyses a potential statute-of-frauds defense to the application of retained-acreage clauses, and offers guidance on crafting and construing such clauses in light of current Texas precedent.
