Bill/Resolution HB247 PN0216 A00305 Type of Motion Adopt Amendment
Maker of Motion Rep. Metzgar Seconded by Rep. Ortitay
Brief Description
• It clarifies that cross unit drilling may occur when drilling an oil or gas well – an oil and gas well are different and are not one in the same. • It clarifies how the allocation is to calculated – the allocation must be related to each lessor’s acreage in the unit. This language protects the landowner by ensuring they are compensated for their entire acreage in the unit. • It makes the terms consistent by replaced “producer” with operator. The term “producer” is not used in Title 58, Chapter 32. “Operator” is the correct term to use and is the term used in the Chapter. • It clarifies that the operator needs to have a valid lease or royalty agreement to conduct cross unit drilling.
