U.S. oil and natural gas production is undergoing tremendous growth, reshaping the world’s energy markets and creating unprecedented demand for midstream infrastructure, from pipelines to storage facilities. As you move to capitalize on this opportunity, Husch Blackwell’s skilled attorneys will help reduce regulatory risks, meet demands for capital and overcome expansion hurdles that accompany the boom in production from horizontal drilling and development of the country’s major shale plays.
Our attorneys routinely develop and negotiate long-term agreements for the supply, purchase, processing and exchange of natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs). Producers; marketers; and operators of gathering systems, processing plants, refineries and transportation systems benefit from our team’s subject matter authority in all major areas of law affecting midstream businesses.
Our Oil & Gas group, which includes attorneys with long and distinguished careers in energy regulation, has the knowledge and experience to anticipate and handle the full spectrum of regulatory matters affecting the industry. We work with federal, state, tribal and local agencies to permit midstream oil and gas gathering, treating, processing, transportation and storage systems. We also represent shipper clients in proceedings under the Interstate Commerce Act.
