In the 1980s, early or “classic” agricultural agreements covered drilling of a single well. Today, however, a typical agricultural agreement covers the possibility of drilling several wells. This requires a compatriot or lawyer to consider several additional conditions in the agreement. For example, the parties must consider the time between the conclusion of a well and the death of the second well. The new farm-out agreement of the AIPN refers to the two types of reflection structures below, which reflect the common transaction structures described above: an undivided interest means, on the other hand, that the farmer transfers a certain percentage or a fraction of his share of the declared area to the farm. Undivided interest is more common when the Farmout agreement is structured around the need for the farmer to share exploration costs with a third party. An example is where the farm is expected to pay 75% of the drilling costs, the parties can agree that, if the salary limit is reached, the farm will benefit from a 75% stake in the well area, or even the entire territory under contract. Whether the farmout is structured as an agricultural commitment or option probably depends on a number of factors [2]See 2 Martin-Kramer, section 432, such as: An agreement on an oil and gas operation is defined as an agreement between a company that holds drilling rights (a farmer) that chooses to transfer all or part of these rights to another company (a farm) in return for drilling in its concessions. Typically, these rights include drilling a well to a certain depth, at a given location, within a specified period of time. The agreement also provides that, where reserves are proven, the well must be converted into commercial production. In other words, a farm is contracted, while a farmer retains a preponderant royalty interest. Both parties therefore agree, on the whole, to complete an extraction well at the sole cost and costs of the farm, for which the farmer undertakes to attribute an interest to the farm in the area surrounding the well.

In Egypt, SDX Energy Inc., formerly known as sea Dragon Energy Inc., entered into a farm agreement in 2014 for its South Disouq concession in the Nile Delta. The South Disouq concession covers 1,275 km2 and is expected to contain significant gas potential. The company has decided to enter into an agreement with IPR Energy Resources, Ltd (IPR) to manage a 45% interest in the area. Under the terms of the agreement, IPR will bear the costs of Phase 1 of the commitment, with a cap, with a signing bonus of $1.9 million. The funds will cover a proportionate share of the remaining work programme in South Disouq and IPRs will have the opportunity to exploit the well commitment.
