agrees to pay the Landlord rent for the Leased Premises, as follows:

          (a)  For the first year of this Lease Agreement, the annual rental to
be paid by Tenant to Landlord shall be $447,319 ("Base Rent"), payable in twelve
                                       --------

payable on or before the 15th day of each month during the first year of this
Lease Agreement. For the purposes of this Lease Agreement, "first year of this
Lease Agreement" shall mean the twelve month period beginning on the date of
this Lease Agreement and ending March 6 , 1988.

          (b)  Within fifteen (15) days after the beginning of each year during

annual rental to be paid by Tenant to the Landlord for such year shall be
calculated and determined, as follows ("Adjusted Annual Rental"): The Base Rent
less the amount or amounts received during the preceding year just ended by the
Landlord of all income, revenues or payments due to or as a result of or from
the oil and gas working interests listed in Exhibit B attached hereto and which
is incorporated herein by reference ("Oil and Gas Revenues"). Within ten (10)

on the above calculation for such year. The Tenant shall pay to the Landlord the
Adjusted Annual Rental for such year in twelve (12) equal monthly installments
during said year, with each monthly installment payable on or before the 15th
day of each month during such year. If in calculating the Annual Adjusted Rental
for a particular year the oil and Gas Revenues for the preceding year just ended
is equal to or greater than the Base Rental, then no rental shall be payable to
the Landlord by the Tenant hereunder during such year, and the amount by which
such oil and Gas Revenues exceeds the Base Rent shall be carried forward and
added to the amount of Oil and Gas Revenues in calculating the Annual Adjusted
Rental for the next subsequent year. For the purposes of this Lease Agreement, a
"year" means a twelve month period beginning on March 7 and ending on March 6.

general liability insurance policy as it relates to the Leased Premises shall
contain a provision requiring the insurer to give written notice of cancellation
to Landlord at least ten (10) days prior to cancellation. Such general liability
insurance as it relates to the Leased Premises shall name Landlord as an
additional insured as its respective interest may appear. Tenant shall supply to

     Notwithstanding the above, Tenant may, at its option, self insure the
general liability in connection with the Leased Premises in lieu of obtaining
general liability insurance on the Leased Premises from an insurance company. In
the event that the Tenant does self-insure such general liability in connection
with the Leased Premises (i) Tenant shall have no obligation to obtain 

                                       9

indemnify the Landlord against, and hold Landlord harmless from, and all claims,
demands, actions, proceedings or liabilities incurred or to be incurred by the
Landlord as a result of an occurrence (as defined below) on the Leased Premises
that occurs during the period that the Tenant is self-insuring such general
liability on the Leased Premises and that results in bodily injury or property
damage to a third party not a party hereto. For the purposes of this Section 17,
"occurrence" means an accident which results in bodily injury or property
damage. If the Tenant does decide to self-insure the general liability in
connection with the Leased Premises, the Tenant agrees to give the Landlord
written notice of its decision no less than ten (10) days prior to the time that
Tenant will begin to self-insure such general liability.

     18.  Fire and Extended Property Damage.
          --------------------------------- 

          (a)  Subject to the terms hereof, during the term of this Lease
Agreement, the Tenant will keep insured any and all buildings and improvements
upon the Leased Premises against all loss or damage by fire, windstorm and
extended coverage, which said insurance will be maintained in an amount not less
than the full replacement value thereof. All of such policies of insurance
relating to the buildings and improvements on the Leased Premises shall name the
Tenant and Landlord as the insureds and shall fully protect both the Landlord
and the Tenant as their respective interests may appear. In the event of damage
to or destruction of 

                                       10
<PAGE>
 
the said buildings or improvements an the Leased Premises by fire, windstorm, or
other casualty for which insurance shall be payable and as often as such
insurance money shall have been paid to the Landlord and the Tenant for damages
to or destruction of the buildings and improvements on the Leased Premises, said
sums so paid shall be deposited in a joint account of the Landlord and the
Tenant in a bank or savings and loan satisfactory to the Tenant ("joint
account"), and such funds in the joint account shall be made available to the
Tenant for the construction or repair, as the case may be, of any buildings or
improvements located on the Leased Premises damaged or destroyed by fire,
windstorm, or other casualty, and shall be paid out by the Landlord and the
Tenant from said joint account from time to time on the estimate of the Tenant,
certifying that the amount of such estimate is being applied to the payment of
the reconstruction or repair. Tenant shall have no obligation to make such
repairs to or restoration of such damaged buildings and improvements located on
the Leased Premises the cost of which exceeds that portion of the insurance
proceeds made available to Tenant to make such repairs or restore such damaged
buildings and improvements on the Leased Premises.

          (b)  The foregoing notwithstanding, in the event the insurance
proceeds are the sum of $100,000 or less, then such proceeds shall be paid
directly to the Tenant without the necessity of creating the joint account, and
Tenant shall use such funds to make the replacements or repairs to the damaged
buildings and improvements on the Leased Premises.

                                       11
<PAGE>
 
          (c)  Any excess of money received from insurance remaining in the
joint account after the reconstruction or repair of such damaged buildings or
improvements on the Leased Premises shall, if the Tenant is not in default under
this Lease Agreement, be paid to Tenant. If the Tenant has not begun to restore
or repair the damaged buildings and improvements located on the Leased Premises
using the proceeds in the joint account for such repairs or restoration within a
period of 120 days from the date of receipt of such casualty, or such extended
period of time as agreed to in writing by both the Tenant and the Landlord, the
Tenant may, at its option, terminate this Lease Agreement and in the event of
such termination by Tenant the proceeds in the joint account shall be paid to
Landlord.

          (d)  If any mortgagee holding a mortgage on the Leased Premises
elects, in accordance with the terms of such mortgage, to require that all or
any part of the proceeds of such insurance paid as a result of damages to the
buildings and improvements located on the Leased Premises be paid to or retained
by the mortgagee, then such payment shall be made, but in such event, the
Landlord shall pay into the joint account referred to in subparagraph (a) of
this Section 18 that amount of the insurance proceeds paid to or retained by
mortgagee. In the event that such mortgagee elects such insurance proceeds be
paid to it in accordance with the terms of such mortgage and the Landlord fails
or refuses, for any reason whatsoever, to pay into such joint account that
amount of such insurance proceeds paid to or retained by the mortgagee within 30

                                       12
<PAGE>
 
days from the date of notification from the mortgagee of the mortgagee's
election to retain or have paid to it such insurance proceeds, in whole or in
part, the Tenant may, at its option, terminate this Lease Agreement.

          (e)  The policies of insurance required to be maintained by the Tenant
pursuant to this Section 18 may be carried by the Tenant under blanket policies
maintained by the Tenant. Such policies may provide for such deductible amounts
as are customarily provided for in insurance maintained by the Tenant with
respect to similar properties owned or leased by it. The policy of insurance
required to be maintained by the Tenant shall bear a standard first mortgagee
endorsement in favor of any holder of a mortgage created prior to the date of
this Lease Agreement. Within ten (10) days after commencement of this Lease
Agreement, Tenant shall deliver to the Landlord certificates of the insurers
evidencing all of the insurance which is required under this Section 18.

          (f)  Notwithstanding the above provisions of this Section 18, Tenant
may, at its option, self-insure the buildings and improvements on the Leased
Premises against damage or destruction by fire, windstorm and extended coverage
in lieu of obtaining insurance from an insurance company covering such buildings
and improvements on the Leased Premises against damage or destruction by fire,
windstorm and extended coverage. In the event that the Tenant does self-insure
such buildings and improvements on the Leased premises against damage or
destruction by fire, windstorm and extended coverage in lieu of obtaining
insurance from  

                                       13
<PAGE>
 
an insurance company covering such damage or destruction, notwithstanding
anything herein to the contrary, (i) Tenant shall have no obligation to obtain
such insurance from an insurance company covering the buildings and improvements
on the Leased Premises against damage or destruction by fire, windstorm and
extended coverage during the period that the Tenant is self-insuring such damage
or destruction, and (ii) in the event of damage to or destruction of any of the
buildings or improvements on the Leased Premises during the period that the
Tenant is self insuring such buildings and improvements and such damage or
destruction is due to a fire, windstorm or other casualty that would be
insurable under a standard fire, windstorm and extended coverage property
insurance policy in effect at the time of such damage or destruction, such
damage or destruction shall be repaired by, and at the expense of, the Tenant in
substantially the condition such damaged or destroyed building or improvement
was in immediately prior to such damage or destruction and the Tenant shall
begin such repair or restoration work as soon as possible after the date of such
casualty. If the Tenant does decide to self-insure the buildings and
improvements on the Leased Premises against damage or destruction by fire,
windstorm and extended coverage, the Tenant agrees to give the landlord written
notice of its decision no less than ten (10) days prior to the time the Tenant
will begin such self-insurance.

     19.  Waiver of Subrogation. Each party hereto waives any and every claim
          ---------------------                                              
that arises or may arise in its favor and against the 

                                       14
<PAGE>
 
other party hereto for any and all loss of, or damage to, any of the buildings,
improvements and/or its property located within or upon, or constituting a part
of, the Leased Premises to the extent such loss or damage is covered by fire and
extended coverage insurance. Said mutual waivers shall be in addition to, and
not in limitation or derogation of, any other waiver or release contained in
this Lease Agreement with respect to any loss of, or damage to buildings or
improvements located on the Leased Premises and/or property of the parties
hereto, inasmuch as the above mutual waivers will preclude the assignment of any
aforesaid claim by way of subrogation (or otherwise) to an insurance company (or
any other person), each party hereto hereby agreeing immediately to give to each
insurance company which has issued to it policies of fire and extended coverage
insurance, written notice of the terms of said mutual waivers, and to have said
insurance policies property endorsed, if necessary, to prevent the invalidation
of said insurance coverages by reason of said waivers.

               --------------------                                          
termination hereof, any public or private authority shall, under the power of
eminent domain, make a taking:

hereunder, according to the nature and extent of the injury to the Leased
Premises and Tenant's business shall be suspended or abated until what may

to preclude Tenant from (i) prosecuting and filing, and the Tenant shall be
entitled to prosecute and file, a claim directly against the condemning
authority in such condemnation proceedings for loss of or damage to Tenant's
business or suffered by Tenant due to loss of its leasehold interest,
depreciation to, damage to, or cost of removal of, or for value of stock, trade

soon as possible repair (but only from and to the extent of the insurance
proceeds released to Tenant from the joint account pursuant to Section 18(a)
hereof, except as otherwise specifically provided in Section 18(f) hereof) the
damaged or destroyed buildings and/or improvements located on the Leased
Premises to as nearly as possible the condition in which they were in
immediately prior to the happening of such casualty. Tenant shall have no
obligation to make any repairs to or restoration of the damaged buildings and
improvements on the Leased Premises the cost of which exceeds that portion of
such insurance proceeds made available to Tenant from such joint account to make
such repairs or restore such damaged buildings and improvements on

until the buildings and improvements located on the Leased Premises are
repaired and restored, the rent payable by Tenant hereunder shall be abated
proportionately according to the floor area of the buildings and improvements
located on the Leased Premises which is usable by the Tenant after such
casualty. Such abatement shall continue for the period commencing with such
damage or destruction and ending with the completion of the work or repair. In
the event that this Lease Agreement is terminated due to exercise of the
Termination Option pursuant to paragraph (c) of this Section 21, the rent shall
be completely abated from the date of the casualty.

          (c) Termination Option. Notwithstanding anything herein to the
              ------------------                                        
contrary, in the event that (i) 25% or more of the Leased Premises, or (ii) 25%
or more of the buildings of which they are a part, are damaged or destroyed or
rendered untenantable by fire or other casualty, Tenant may, at its option,

notice of such termination; except that the termination option to terminate this
Lease Agreement under this Section 21(c) shall not be applicable if on the date

insuring such damage or destruction in lieu of obtaining insurance from an

Lease Agreement, the Landlord, at its option, may require the Tenant to pay such
deficiency month by month, or may hold the Tenant in advance for the entire
deficiency to be realized during the term of the reletting. Landlord shall
