The purpose of this Article is to examine existing case law on implied covenants in oil and gas leases in the Appalachian Basin states, identify gaps in case law, and as far as reasonably possible, to predict the issues that might be litigated in the future in light of the rush to develop the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale formations.
