The folks at the National Business Institute have asked me to speak about oil and gas leasing at a seminar in early April. The seminar title is Hydraulic Fracturing Law, and it promises to feature a number of interesting and valuable presentations on energy-related topics such as land valuations, regulatory challenges, as well as environmental concerns. I will be discussing the basic structure of an oil and gas lease from the perspective of both the landowner and the energy company. I will also discuss current litigation issues with respect to oil and gas leases, and offer insight about where these trends might lead.
The event is scheduled for April 10, in Cleveland and April 11, in Akron. For more details, or to register, please see NBI’s website for the event.
