I wonder if anyone has any lease language for these items that basically says:
1. Operator must timely drill additional wells; otherwise, the acreage not drilled is released.
2. Operator must produce any well capable of producing - in other words the operator cannot refuse to produce well(s) to blackmail the royalty owner and use held by production to tie up all the other acreage.
3. Are there other items that should be in a lease to protect the vulnerable royalty owner.
