This course is intended for any land personnel requiring a better understanding of the 1997 and 2015 CAPL Farmout and Royalty Procedures and the associated 1997 and 2015 CAPL Overriding Royalty Procedures, with a focus on the differences between the 1997 and 2015 documents. Given the commonality on the operative provisions of the two documents, the review of the Overriding Royalty Procedure focuses on the major differences between the handling of ORRs relative to that in the Farmout and Royalty Procedure.
The focus of the course will be on a conceptual review of the major provisions of the documents and their evolution over time. This review is largely designed to offer attendees comfort and confidence with the 2015 versions of the documents.
Registration Fee includes beverages and snacks.
