Williams & Meyers, Oil and Gas Law (Abridged Edition) is a one-volume abridgment of the eight-volume Williams & Meyers treatise on oil and gas law [Pub. 00820]. It is designed to make available to persons concerned with the oil and gas industry—lawyers, landmen (oil company employees who manage the company's relations with its landowners), engineers, investors, legislators and other government officials—a general survey of the law governing the transfer, leasing, and development of oil and gas interests. Many of the lengthy discussions found in the treatise have been abbreviated so that the reader is not “bogged down” by excessive detail; in addition, footnotes have been kept to a minimum. The abridged edition offers expert guidance on:
* Nature of interests in oil and gas
* Oil and gas conveyancing
* Grants and reservations affecting the working interest
* Concurrent and successive interests
* Oil and gas leases
* Implied covenants
* Division orders, transfer orders, and gas purchase contracts
* Pooling and unitization
A reader who desires more information, case citations, and other authority of topics discussed in the abridged edition may go directly to the corresponding sections of the eight-volume treatise, Williams & Meyers, Oil and Gas Law.
