Question If the owner of a dormant oil lease in New Mexico has not paid the working interest expenses for a considerable time , would he loose his interest and would he be legally liable for the unpaid expenses ?
Answer Sorry, but you have not provided enough details. The only answer I can give is "not necessarily." The question is also ambiguous. "Dormant" suggests no activity. "Working interest expenses" suggest the opposite. I would need more facts to understand what you are asking.
