It is additionally provided that in the event any Railroad Commission of Texas forms require the Farmee to designate acreage for density, spacing, pro-ration or other purposes, Farmor and Farmee shall mutually agree upon the designation of such acreage which shall then be credited to Farmee for the limited purposes of Railroad Commission of Texas filings, but Farmee shall have no other rights in the Lease irrespective of the designation of same on the Railroad Commission of Texas filings by Farmee.
