Ryan Clinton Speaks at State Bar of Texas Oil & Gas Disputes Conference in Houston
On January 11, 2019, Austin, Texas appellate attorney Ryan Clinton spoke to an audience of oil-and-gas attorneys and executives at the State Bar of Texas Oil and Gas Disputes Conference in Houston, Texas.
Ryan presented on the topic of the oil-and-gas leasehold estate, how the estate is created, and how to determine whether the estate has ended. Ryan spoke about the classifications of lease clauses— covenants, conditions subsequent, and special limitations— and the remedies available for the breach of each type of clause. Ryan also discussed the application of the so-called “rule against forfeiture” in Texas, and the Texas “repudiation doctrine.”
