Pooling Protective Lease Clause

I have encountered a very lengthy and confusing pooling clause. Does anyone have a protective pooling clause to put in my lease?

Assuming I get a well, don't want to be thrown in with nearby older production that's already been partially depleted. I also don't want a unit to be larger than necessary just to avoid my Pugh (Freestone) Clause and hold more minerals HBP than necessary. And there are probably other pitfalls I've never dreamed about.

Help would be very much appreciated.
