Federal and Indian Lease Royalty Decisions--Important Judicial and Administrative Cases From 1992-1997

Howard W. Chalker, Geoffrey Heath, Sarah L. Inderbitzin, Federal and Indian Oil & Gas Royalty Valuation and Management II (1998)

This paper is intended to give a brief summary of many of the most significant administrative and judicial decisions on Federal and Indian oil and gas lease royalty issues issued since the 1992 Institute on Federal and Indian Oil and Gas Royalty Valuation and Management. The views expressed in this paper are the personal views of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Office of the Solicitor, the Minerals Management Service (MMS), or the Department of the Interior (DOI). The cases are organized by functional category rather than separating administrative from judicial decisions, in the hope that the information will be more useful to the reader.
