Sec. 1.

Any person, firm or corporation, who shall by any contract or contracts, express or implied or partly expressed and partly implied with the owner, part owner or lessee of any leasehold, for oil and gas purposes or of any gas pipe line or oil pipe line, or with one whom such owner, part owner or lessee has authorized or knowingly permitted to contract in his or their behalf for the drilling, boring, torpedoing, acidizing, completing, operating or repairing of any oil or gas well or for the constructing or repairing of any oil or gas derrick, oil tank, gas pipe line or oil pipe line, perform any labor or furnish any materials, machinery, tools, equipment, fuel, explosives, acid, or oil or gas well supplies or other things of value used in the drilling, torpedoing, acidizing, completing, operating or repairing of any oil or gas well, or who shall furnish any oil or gas well supplies, or other things of value or perform any labor in constructing or putting together any of the apparatus, fixtures or machinery used in the drilling, boring, torpedoing, acidizing, operating, completing or repairing of any oil or gas well, or who shall furnish any material, equipment, machinery, supplies or other things of value or perform any labor for constructing, operating or repairing any oil pipe line or gas pipe line, oil or gas derrick or oil tank, shall have a lien upon such leasehold, oil and gas produced from said leasehold, oil well, gas well, lease for oil and gas purposes, oil or gas derrick, oil tank, oil pipe line, gas pipe line, buildings, fixtures, appurtenances, and upon the material, tools, machinery and supplies or other things of value so furnished, and upon the oil and gas fixtures, machinery and appliances used in operations for oil and gas purposes upon the leasehold or premises for which said material and supplies were furnished or labor performed, for the amount due to him, it or them for such materials, machinery, tools, equipment, fuel, explosives, acid, or oil or gas well supplies, services or labor or other things of value and shall be entitled to interest at the legal rate from the date the same is due. These liens shall extend to a life estate, an estate for years, or any other estate or any right of redemption or other interest which such owner, part owner, or lessee may have in such leasehold at the time of making such contract or may subsequently acquire therein, and to an estate in fee when the owner or part owner thereof drills or develops said land for oil or gas purposes. Such liens shall follow the property and each and every part thereof and be enforceable against the said property wherever the same may be found and shall attach as of the date on which the first of such materials are furnished or labor performed under the contract. The taking of any note or additional security by any party entitled to such lien for the amount so due or any part thereof shall not be a waiver of any right of lien which such party may have by virtue of this act unless made a waiver by express agreement of the parties. Materials or other items for which such lien is given which are furnished by the same contractor to the same owner or to the successors or assigns of such owner for operations on same premises or leasehold, which are delivered on separate orders given at various times shall, for the purpose of this act be considered as having been furnished under a single contract: Provided, That not more than 3 months shall have elapsed between the date of delivery of any such item and the date of the last preceding delivery of materials therefor. There may be additional and successive contracts upon which additional liens may be recorded as herein provided. In no event shall it be necessary to fix or stipulate in any contract a time for the completion or a time for payment in order to obtain a lien under this act.
