Gas law


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."
