Gas law

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2008 at 1:36 PM

An attorney general's opinon today declines to render an opinion on whether the Oil and Gas Commission can "force pool," or integrate, mineral interests of government agencies. Slightly arcane, but I mention it because it says, in passing, that constitutionally independent agencies such as the Highway Commission (and thus the Game and Fish Commission presumably) are "probably exempt from A.C.A. § 22-5-801 et seq., which gives the Commissioner of State Lands exclusive authority to negotiate and execute oil and gas leases covering the State of Arkansas or its agencies."
