By 1985, every oil and gas-producing state but Texas had passed a 'unitization' statute requiring cooperation among the various owners of oil and gas reserves. Using interviews, legislative transcripts, and statistical data, Jacqualine Lang Weaver attempts to explain why Texas failed to enact such a statute – aimed at encouraging the most efficient recovery of resources – and how Texas has managed to achieve substantial unitization nonetheless. Originally published in 1986.

About the Series

RFF Energy Policy Set

While media and public attention to energy issues tends to wax and wane, energy security and the environmental implications of energy use have always been a core component of RFF's research agenda. Key concerns include protecting the economy from price shocks and exploring the connections between energy use and economic growth. This collection of eight works represents some of RFF's best work on these subjects.

The RFF Library Collection brings back landmark books published by Resources for the Future throughout its nearly 60-year history as the pre-eminent research institution devoted exclusively to environmental issues. The Collection offers individuals and institutions the most classic and relevant literature across a range of environmental issues.
