Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
Steptoe & Johnson PLLC has put the final touches on the agenda for its Energy Leadership Summit to be held in Houston on Tuesday, January 14, 2014. The Summit will be held at The Petroleum Club beginning at 8:30 a.m. The day-long event includes presentations and panel discussions designed to brief energy industry decision makers on emerging issues in shale gas development.
More than two dozen Steptoe & Johnson energy attorneys from Texas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia will be on hand as moderators and presenters.
Some of the topics include:
- Structuring deals and energy transactions
- A panel discussion on industry threats, trends and upcoming legal actions
- Pooling and unitization in shale producing states
- Midstream issues
- International energy development
The results of a Steptoe & Johnson commissioned study on the greatest challenges in shale development inspired the Energy Leadership Summit. The year-long study showed that most legal disputes in energy involve conflicts with landowners, title issues, leases and contracts. Plus, the average shale developer’s annual litigation costs often top three million dollars. To view the findings, visit “Beneath the Surface.”
