Whether a transaction involves a $5,000 exchange of access rights or a $3 billion acquisition of producing oil & gas or mining properties, due diligence is a fundamental component of all business transactions and particularly critical for natural resources industries. The program will provide an in-depth examination of the due diligence process in connection with oil and gas and mining transactions.
The first day of the program will analyze broader organizational and issue-based concepts surrounding the due diligence process. The second day presents split sections focusing specifically on oil and gas transactions and mining transactions. The program will be valuable for new and experienced lawyers, landmen, mineral managers, consultants, and other professionals responsible for bringing to light and managing issues and risks arising from acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, royalty, and other arrangements in the oil & gas and mining industries.
The Due Diligence Handbook is included in course materials.
