Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling have transformed the U.S. oil & gas industry by permitting oil and gas production from previously uneconomical formations. Production is at an all-time high, but this renaissance comes with a host of new technical, legal, and environmental challenges. Our expert faculty will tackle a range of issues, including:

  • Environmental challenges & local government regulatory efforts
  • Technical aspects and innovations for non-engineers
  • Liability for trespass when fractures cross subsurface property lines
  • Tips for service contracts and master service agreements
  • Expert and evidentiary issues when plaintiffs allege damages
  • How agreements drafted for vertical wells may be inadequate
  • Takings claims from actual or effective bans on oil & gas activity
  • Preemption of local regulations by state law
Bring your skis and boards – early-season conditions at Colorado ski resorts are the best in years!
For new and experienced lawyers, landmen, corporate managers, communications personnel, government officials, non-governmental organizations, and others interested in the law and regulation of hydraulic fracturing and related activities.
