Highlight

A royalty owner does not have a private right of action for damages for violations of the statute limiting flaring of gas from an oil well.
The Environmental Law Enforcement Act provides a cumulative remedy for a royalty owner seeking the payment of royalties for gas flaring in violations, but the royalty owner must exhaust administrative remedies before pursuing a claim in court.
There is no common law in any case in which the law is declared by statute.
