      Home > Mineral Interest > Oil & Gas Terms The terms “pooling” and “unitization” are often used interchangeably. To confuse the matter further, in Ohio, there are statutory definitions for a “pool” and a “drilling unit” and neither is related to a “unit.” Hopefully, this will provide some clarification. View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature. This publication treats both private and public relationships in pooling and unitization of oil and gas properties, as well as the antitrust aspects of pooling and unitization, pooling clauses, and state-by-state analysis.

Nearly half of these revenues were.

      Unitization, on the other hand, refers to the consolidation of mineral or leasehold interests covering a common source of oil and or gas supply in order to most efficiently extract the oil and gas. Unitization not only protects the efficiency of the natural gas production, but it also protects the correlative rights of the various owners within the pool. In fiscal year (FY) , onshore Federal oil and gas lease holders sold million barrels of oil, trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and billion gallons of natural gas liquids, with a market value of more than $ billion, and generating royalties of almost $2 billion. Nearly half of these revenues were distributed to the States.

Unitization, Communitization, Spacing, and Drainage Unitization (Exploratory and Secondary): Unitization provides for the exploration and development of an entire geologic structure or area by a single operator so that drilling and production may proceed in the most efficient and economic manner.

Communitization (Pooling): Provides guidelines for submitting. Unitization of Federal Oil and Gas Leases. Unitization is the agreement to jointly operate an entire producing reservoir or a prospectively productive area of oil and/or gas. The entire unit area is operated as a single entity, without regard to lease boundaries, and allows for the maximum recovery of production from the reservoir.

The unitization clause of an oil and gas lease grants the lessee the power to unitize the lessors’ interest without further consent by the lessor. Another arrangement of concerted oil extraction is by way of joint leases. Regulations, Onshore Orders and Notices to Lessees.

Onshore Oil and Gas Orders and the Code of Federal Regulation implement and supplement the oil and gas regulations found at 43 CFR for conducting oil and gas operations on federal and Indian lands.

Communitization, Unitization and the Extension of Leases Robert P. Hill, Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Pooling and Unitization II () The basic purpose underlying communitization (pooling) and unitization of oil and gas leases is to develop oil and gas resources efficiently by avoiding the drilling of unnecessary wells.
