Brexit, the growing prominence of private equity investors in the North Sea and decommissioning under scrutiny are among key themes at OGUK’s 2019 legal conference taking place on September 12 at Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen.
Offering in-house and private practice lawyers of all levels a deeper awareness of industry’s key issues, the full day event (followed by dinner at the hotel) also promotes knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities across the North Sea legal community.
Sam Dunkley, OGUK’s legal manager, said:
“As the basin continues to adapt to regulatory and political changes and continuing transfers of ownership, it is more useful than ever to bring upstream lawyers together to discuss current and anticipated legal and regulatory developments.
“Included in our packed agenda is an Oil and Gas Authority update on its evolving approach to regulation for Maximising Economic Recovery from the UKCS (MERUK) and the Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning (OPRED) will share its views regarding financial capability for decommissioning.
There’ll be a focus on joint operating agreement (JOA) disputes, an introduction to the new model Sale and Purchase agreement being produced by the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN) and case law updates. We also have a panel discussion, an icebreaker and a final Q&A – seeking to make this event more interactive than ever.
“We’re very grateful to our principal sponsor CMS and supporting sponsor Clyde & Co for their support in helping us offer delegates an exciting and engaging one day event as the sector’s leading legal conference.”
