As many of you are already aware, oil and gas pipelines in Texas and in the United States are being constructed at a record pace. Oil and gas pipeline construction is expected to be up by 73% in 2013. The Pipeline & Gas Journal recently reported that 116,837 miles of pipeline are planned this year worldwide, and almost 42,000 miles of new pipeline are planned for North America alone. Part of the increase in construction is due to shale oil and gas plays, that have resulted in increased production of both oil and natural gas.
I am honored to have been asked to present a telephone conference regarding the basics of oil and gas pipeline negotiation on October 3, 2013. It is basically my version of “Texas Oil & Gas Pipelines 101”. I’m looking forward to it and it should be fun. If you have any interest in attending, you can sign up at the National Business Institute CLE page for this telephone conference, which you can access here.
if you are an attorney, you can get CLE credit for the seminar. However, if you are a landowner faced with a request for a pipeline easement, you may find this informative as well.
