Michigan Oil and Gas Newsletter

Oil and Gas Newsletter discusses royalty, liability issues, proposed State of Michigan mineral rights auction and hydraulic fracturing regulations.

A new issue of the Michigan Oil and Gas Newsletter is now available for your review and is filled with articles of interest. This newsletter is intended for landowners and other members of the public with interest in the development of oil and gas industry here in Michigan. Information in this issue includes articles on; Liability Issues in Gas Development Contracts, Michigan Farm Bureau “Oil Gas and Mineral Rights” Publication, Proposed State of Michigan Lease Auction to Offer More than 122,000 Acres, Michigan DEQ Announces New Hydraulic Fracturing Regulations, and The Magnitude of the Lease Royalty. This information can be found at www.msue.msu.edu/oilandgas for your review or can be downloaded to share with others interested in this topic. Understanding the process and practices that are part of the development of an oil and gas lease agreement and an eventual positive win–win agreement between the landowner and oil development company takes some effort.
