Held by production is a provision in an oil or natural gas property lease that allows the lessee, generally an energy company, to continue drilling activities on the property as long as it is economically producing a minimum amount of oil or gas. The held by production provision thereby extends the lessee’s right to operate the property beyond the initial lease term. This provision is also a feature of mineral property leases.
