The IEL will be presenting its 4th Oilfield Services Law Conference in Houston's JW Marriott Hotel on Thursday, October 9th. This year's conference co-chairs are Michael Bennett of Baker Botts and Kevin Blodgett of Rockwater Energy Solutions, and they have recruited an outstanding faculty to discuss matters of interest to in-house and private practice counsel working in the oilfield services space.
Highlights will include a review of transactional trends in oilfield services, avoiding liability under the Fair Labor Standards Act, a discussion of important contract issues, another look at hydraulic fracing regulation, dealing with sanctions, and the problems of e-discovery. Mark Stubbe, Senior Vice President at Cheniere Energy in Houston, will give a lunchtime talk on LNG export. You can find more details and register at cailaw.org/iel.
The IEL's Oilfield Services Practice Committee, led by Alex Cestero and Michael Bennett, has a growing membership of lawyers practicing in this field. As well as being closely involved with the annual conference, the committee organizes short CLE sessions (usually over breakfast) a few times a year, and is an ideal group for oilfield services lawyers to network with their peers. Please contact Alex or Mike for more details, or Alan Dunlop at the IEL.
