Key Lease Provisions


  • Lessor (Mineral Owner)
  • Lessee (Oil & Gas Company)

Legal Description

  • Description of lands that are being leased; may describe the gross acreage covered by lands.


  • Primary Term – number of years for which the initial lease term is granted, wherein Lessee must either establish production or begin drilling operations on the leased lands, either actual or pooled, before the lease expires. See also Option to Extend.
    • Example: Effective date 1/1/2023, 5 year Primary Term = 12/31/2027 Expiration Date
  • Secondary Term – once production is established the lease moves into the Secondary Term and will remain active for so long as there is production or operations are being conducted.


  • The royalty clause establishes the lessor’s percentage of royalty that will be payable under the oil and gas lease.

Shut-In Royalty

  • A Shut-In Royalty clause allows for a payment to be made in lieu of the regular royalty payment. Here, the amount of Shut-in Royalty payment, terms of how long a well can be shut-in for and when payment is due, is determined.

Proportionate Reduction

  • States that Lessor will be paid (rentals, royalties) based on their actual mineral interest and not the gross amount of surface acres.


  • Pooling refers to combining leased lands with other lands in order to form a single drilling or producing unit.
  • Unitization refers to field-wide operations, that may comprise of multiple drilling or spacing units, often for the purpose of secondary recovery of the resources.

Option to Extend

  • Allows lease to be extended for a specified amount of time past the expiration date of the primary term if drilling operations or production are not present. Additional consideration (Extension Bonus) is due on or before the expiration of the primary term.
  • The option to extend a lease is at the discretion of the Lessee and no additional permission is required by the Lessor if this provision exists in the lease.
