Speakers

Douglas M. Potter, CPL

Credits

1.00 CEU

Time

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description

Course Level: Intermediate 

With a bit of creative thought, nearly every title dispute can be characterized as a battle for the ownership of WI & NRI. In this webinar, Douglas M. Potter, CPL, provides his commentary as to the contested WI & NRI for selected Lawsuits within AAPL's Landman Magazine's [March/April, 2020 Vol 65 No. 2] article The Top 10 Texas Oil and Gas Cases of 2019. The commentary is not to be considered to be a legal opinion, but rather general guidance for Landmen in their daily work.


To prepare you for this webinar, the commentator suggests that the webinar registrant should familiarize himself/herself with the above AAPL article. The March/April 2020 Landman Magazine can be located here:
https://www.landman.org/resources/member-resources/landman-magazine 
(You must be logged in to view) - the specific article can be found further down this page, under "Additional Information" as a PDF.


After the webinar, AAPL’s Landnews Digest will serve as a “blog” to provide feedback and peer review of Mr. Potter’s comments.   AAPL’s Landnews Digest will also serve as a forum to exchange perspectives for similar circumstances in other oil producing states.  If you are not currently receiving AAPL’s Landnews Digest then please visit www.landman.org and subscribe.

Power Hour: Fast Closings and Delayed Due Diligence: Doing Oil and Gas Deals With Limited Access to County Records (Webinar)

Speakers

Brandon Durrett

Credits

1.00 CEU

Time

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description

The lengthy, cost-intensive due diligence process is often fatal to closing an oil and gas asset sale. The recent quarantine has highlighted this problem, with deals being lost or delayed due to lack of access to county records. This webcast will discuss a seldom-used deal structure that closes the sale immediately and postpones the typical pre-closing price adjustments to a future date. This deal structure offers benefits and risks to both buyer and seller, but it may be the solution that both parties need. The webcast will also cover the basics of purchase price adjustments under oil and gas PSAs and related matters.
