Tie In Agreement
Many companies had started using tie-in agreements, but the terms and conditions among the various agreements was inconsistent. This created inefficiencies in agreement review and comment processes so industry requested the PJVA prepare a model agreement.
The intent of the Model Tie-In Agreement is to address the activities associated with the tie-in of a production source, such as a well, to a third party facility. With respect to costs, liability and indemnification, the intent is to the keep the Operator whole. The Operator maintains control of its facilities during tie-in activities. The tie-in is conducted at the Producer's sole cost, risk and expense. The Model Tie-In Agreement uses standard PJVA model agreement formatting and standard PJVA definitions, clauses and articles.
