Marcellus Shale Update: A Changing Legal Landscape in Pennsylvania
Thursday, March 22, 2012
The legal landscape for the burgeoning Marcellus Shale industry in Pennsylvania is rapidly changing. This webinar will provide an overview of recent legislation regarding Marcellus Shale development in Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Superior Court's decision regarding the Dunham Rule, a presumption that when a reservation or exception for "minerals" does not mention natural gas or oil, the word "minerals" does not include natural gas or oil. This webinar also will explore case law developments impacting ownership of mineral rights, and leasing and drilling issues including title washing, implied lease duties, delay rental payments, and production and storage rights.
