In the last ten years, technical advances in hydraulic fracturing have made vast reserves of shale gas and oil technically and economically recoverable in North America.
Currently, the United States and Canada account for virtually all of the global shale related production. As shale oil and gas production increases globally, North America's experience in the exploration and production of unconventional resources can serve as a valuable blueprint for countries in the initial stages of this development.
This web seminar will look at the key issues facing energy companies worldwide as they pursue new opportunities in the unconventional hydrocarbon sector.
Topics will include:
US shale play overview and related mergers and acquisitions issues
environmental and regulatory trends impacting US shale plays
US litigation involving shale plays
legal issues affecting shale plays in Canada
The dial-in/log-in information will be emailed to you a day prior to the web seminar. This web seminar is offered at no charge to clients and friends of Norton Rose Fulbright.
