This CLE webinar will prepare counsel to companies involved in natural gas and shale gas development to understand the EPA air, permitting and waste standards--in addition to a briefing on regulatory, legislative and litigation developments. The panel will offer best practices for addressing the legal challenges in lease negotiations and environmental issues.

Description

Unconventional gas production developments continue to be carefully monitored and highly regulated. Natural gas and shale gas extraction operations can result in several potential impacts on the environment resulting in costly litigation and penalties for developers.

The EPA has made strides in providing strict regulations and guidance to ensure adherence to federal air standards, proper permitting of hydraulic fracturing using diesel fuels and the safe management of waste.

Implementing natural gas and shale gas extraction operations and procedures entails potential litigation challenges that counsel must understand and anticipate. Lease negotiations involve issues of royalty fees and environmental indemnification.

Listen as our panel examines the EPA standards for air, permitting and waste management impacting natural gas and shale gas production in addition to other legislative and regulatory developments, and outlines best practices for addressing legal challenges in lease negotiations and environmental issues.
