An arrangement whereby one oil operator "buys in" or acquires an interest in a lease or concession owned by another operator on which oil or gas has been discovered or is being produced. Often farm-ins are negotiated to assist the original owner with development costs and to secure for the buyer a source of crude or natural gas. See Farm-out Agreement.
