By FindLaw Staff on August 27, 2009 5:38 PM

In a real estate contract case involving a restrictive covenant preventing the sale of any non-BP petroleum products on the property, district court's grant of defendant-BP's motion for summary judgment is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in considering the real estate contract and the Petroleum Restriction together as the Petroleum restriction is part of the real estate contract to be read as a whole; 2) district court did not err in enforcing the covenant as it continued to benefit BP and the changed circumstances in BP's plans did not defeat the purpose of the restriction; and 3) the premise that successors are not bound because the restrictions do not run with the land is rejected.
