SPLIT DECISION–OIL & GAS: Statute of Limitations, Swift Energy Operating, LLC v. Regency Field S

In Swift Energy Operating, LLC v. Regency Field Services, LLC, the majority held that the statute of limitations barred the plaintiff’s claims of negligence, trespass, and nuisance, as those claims related to one mineral lease, but the defendant did not conclusively establish, for summary judgment purposes, the limitations period had run on those claims to the extent they were based on other leases.

The concurrence–dissent would have held the defendant conclusively established the limitations period had run on the plaintiff’s claims as to all of the mineral leases.
