PART 3.  INTERRUPTION OF POSSESSION OF MINERAL RIGHTS

BY POSSESSION OF LAND

§156.  Interruption of possession by use or exercise of mineral rights

Possession of mineral rights under Article 154 or 155 is lost by adverse use or exercise of them according to their nature.  Loss of possession occurs although the production or operations constituting the adverse use or exercise are not on the land being possessed.  It is sufficient that the production or operations constitute a use of the mineral rights according to the title of the owner thereof.  In the case of a mineral lease, the use or exercise must be such that it would interrupt the liberative prescription of nonuse if the lessee had been the owner of a mineral servitude.
