At The Podium
Litigation Update on Recent Energy Industry Contract Litigation
Disagreements over the meaning, performance and obligations owing under particular contracts represent one of the most common areas of litigation in the energy industry today.
In his one-hour presentation titled “Litigation Update on Recent Court Decisions Resolving Issues Under Oil and Gas Industry Contracts,” veteran oil and gas litigator Mark Christiansen takes to the podium at the American Conference Institute’s 2nd National Forum on Oil & Gas Litigation to review some of the most interesting contract disputes and court rulings of recent years, including those involving common contracts such as operating agreements, asset purchase and sale agreements, farmouts and exploration agreements, areas of mutual interest agreements, contracts for the purchase and sale of oil or natural gas and industry service agreements. He also discusses how the contract principles applied by the courts often create precedents that impact other types of agreements.
ACI’s 2nd National Forum on Oil & Gas Litigation is focused on providing both in-house and outside counsel with legal insights and winning strategies for successfully handling the increasing stream of litigation involving the energy industry. Other featured speakers include in-house counsel from two of Oklahoma’s leading energy companies. Reagan Bradford with Chesapeake Energy Corp. and Linda Cook with Continental Resources, Inc. team up with other in-house attorneys to offer their perspectives on handling complex litigation challenges.
