Basics of Oil and Gas Production


The oil and gas exploration and production business is highly technologically complex. New attorneys beginning their careers as energy lawyers should benefit from learning how the industry works. In this webinar you will learn the benefits of oil and gas to the world, how and why oil and gas’s characteristics affect the way they are produced and marketed, how supply and demand make the market for these raw products, and the manner in which these resources are discovered and produced. Even more than most industries, practicing law for upstream oil and gas clients requires that attorneys understand both the jargon and the basics of how the industry works. Without the need to be a chemist, geologist or engineer, you will learn the important basics of each of these academic fields as they apply to the upstream oil and gas industry. Join a panel of experts from FTI Consulting’s Energy Power and Products Practice who specialize in providing expert testimony on the economics of the oil and gas industry for the first in a series of webinars on how the oil and gas industry works.

Duration: 60 minutes
