As Mike Knapp examines proposed rules for his own job, he is more agreeable than expected. "I would not be averse," begins the Pennsylvania landman as he considers part of a liberal wish list for restrictions on oil and gas leasing, "to a system of registering landmen so that a landowner could verify that they are who they say they are."
