Cozen O’Connor: Andrea Hammel and Jared Bayer Prevail on Behalf of Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

Andrea Hammel and Jared Bayer Prevail on Behalf of Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

Monday, March 17, 2014

Andrea Hammel and Jared Bayer, members of Cozen O’Connor’s Commercial Litigation Department, recently obtained a favorable ruling on behalf of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. The Pennsylvania Superior Court handed a win to Anadarko on Friday, March 14, ruling that oil and gas lease agreements remain valid in their original form even after the discovery of deed restrictions that require legal action to resolve. In a precedential ruling, a three-judge panel ruled that a 2006 agreement giving Anadarko E&P Co. LP access to oil and gas under a 62-acre property owned by Leo and Sandra Shedden remained valid as drafted, despite subsequent quiet title proceedings to clear the Sheddens from a previously unknown deed reserving half of the land’s subsurface rights.
