RMMLF Breakfast and Oil and Gas Update CLE

  • Houston, Texas
  • February 6, 2020 at 8:00-10:00am CST



Please join us for RMMLF’s Breakfast and Oil and Gas Update CLE, being held during NAPE. This program will provide a 60 minute CLE on recent case law and legal developments in oil and gas law, along with an opportunity to meet and network with peers over breakfast.

Over the last year, courts around the nation have been busy deciding a wide variety of oil and gas disputes. This presentation will provide a multi-jurisdictional survey of recent cases relevant to upstream oil and gas operators, non-operators, and interest owners. Topics covered will include the role of expert testimony and prior drafts in construing unambiguous contracts, offset drilling obligations, calculations of compensatory royalties for horizontal wellbores, lease termination issues, surface use restrictions and accommodation issues, retained acreage and continuous development disputes, subsurface trespass by hydraulic fracturing title issues, enforceability of correction deeds, and the use of contract operators under joint operating agreements.

This oil and gas CLE will be presented by Austin Brister, a partner at McGinnis Lochridge in Houston, Texas.
