The purpose of this paper is to discuss recent developments in the law which are of in terest to lawyers in the field of oil and gas. It deals with both statutory developments and judicial decisions, the bulk of the paper being devoted to a review of the cases reported in the last year. Many of the cases discussed do not pertain directly to the oil and gas industry. These cases have been included either because they involve situations analogous to those which occur frequently in the oil and gas business or because they apply principles of law which are applicable to this industry.
