Independent Operations: Article X of the CAPL Operating Procedure
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractThis article discusses independent oil and gas operations on jointly held properties, and in particular considers the application of Article X of the Operating Procedures of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen. It explores the rights and obligations of both the party proposing the independent operation and the non-participating party. Recent judicial consideration of some aspects of the operating procedures is discussed. The article suggests some specific changes parties may wish to incorporate when adapting the operating procedure to their circumstances.
