Highlight

An "unless" clause in an oil and gas lease provides that the lease shall terminate unless the lessee does some specific act, such as commencing a well or making specified payments.
A lease with an "unless" clause terminates automatically if the lessee fails to pay or tender the required payment on or before the due date.
