Carlson v. Bold Petroleum, Inc

In Carlson v. Bold Petroleum, Inc. (Colo. Ct.App. 2000) 996 P.2d 751, 752, a Colorado court concluded that a pipeline easement that was renewable for three-year periods was perpetual. The court stated: "We are aware of no prohibition against parties providing for such multiple renewals of easement rights. Indeed, there is nothing either improper or unusual about an easement's being of a perpetual duration. We find the cases cited by plaintiff regarding perpetual leases to be simply inapplicable to this case, which involves the grant of an easement rather than a lease agreement." (Id. at p. 753.)
