Jackson Kelly Attorney to Discuss Implied Right to Pool Oil and Gas Leases
April 24, 2016
Jackson Kelly attorney Kenneth E. Tawney will be a featured guest on three West Virginia Radio Corporation programs on Tuesday, April 26, 2016. Tawney will be a guest on Inside Shale Weekly, Morgantown A.M. and Metronews Talkline. Tawney will discuss the recent ruling by the 2nd Judicial Circuit of West Virginia in which the Court found that there is an implied right to pool and unitize an oil and gas lease because it is reasonably necessary to develop shale formations, does not harm the mineral owners, promotes development, prevents delay and unproductiveness, implements the intent of the parties and is consistent with public policy. He will discuss implications for the oil and gas industry in West Virginia and other states as well as how the ruling benefits the interests of all owners.
