Special Institute on

Midstream Oil & Gas from the Upstream Perspective

Oil and gas producers are encountering economic, regulatory, and operational challenges impacting production and the ability to get product to market. This two-day Special Institute will focus on the interplay between upstream and midstream operations, including the latest developments and risks affecting exploration, production, gathering, marketing, storage, transportation, and operations.

Both upstream operators and midstream companies must understand these challenges and pursue strategies to avoid significant legal and economic difficulties. Our expert faculty will provide tips on successfully implementing midstream projects, and explain strategies utilized in the midstream sector that are available to producers engaging in their own midstream operations or in midstream joint ventures. Increasingly important commercial considerations, including survival of midstream commitments in bankruptcy, elements of a commercial gathering project, the private equity perspective, gathering production by the upstream operator, and shared infrastructure projects, will be addressed. Attorneys, landmen, accountants, engineers, regulators, management, and others engaged in upstream and midstream operations will benefit from attending.

Experienced attendees will benefit from deeper insights into critical, cutting-edge topics, while resource professionals who are relatively new to the practice will benefit from the experience of our distinguished speakers. We hope you can join us in Houston to continue the tradition of valuable educational and networking opportunities provided by our institutes.

Course materials and audio recordings are available in various formats if you are unable to attend.
