Oil and Gas Leases – Non-consenting Tenants. Most states (Ohio included) permit one co-tenant (or her lessee) to develop oil and gas without the other co-tenant’s permission. The tenant who develops the land, however, must provide an accounting to the other co-tenants and cannot prevent the other co-tenants from developing the oil and gas or signing an oil and gas lease. Under Texas law, Devon and Apache were co-tenants, and Apache is obligated to account to Devon for 2/3rds of the net profits from the wells, which Apache did. But Apache refused to pay Devon’s royalty owners. Devon’s lessors then sued Apache and Devon for their royalties. An overriding royalty interest is a royalty interest carved out of the working interest created by an oil and gas lease. It is an interest in oil and gas produced at the surface free of the expense of production and its duration is limited by the duration of the lease under which it is created.
