Utica Shale: Issues in Law, Practice and Policy

Save the date for the Utica Shale Conference: Issues in Law, Practice and Policy.

Presented by the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and the College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University.

This 1.5 day conference will provide an overview of the legal issues presented as the State of Ohio and local landowners work within the industry to extract oil and gas from the Utica Shale. The conference will provide an introduction to hydrofracturing and oil and gas leasing. In addition to focusing on original leases, it will address the tax, accounting and estate planning issues that may arise in the context of those leasing relationships. It will address more advanced contracting, including purchase and sale agreements, financing agreements, and joint operating agreements. Finally, it will provide a context for discussing the environmental concerns that have arisen as a result of hydraulic fracturing and the economic development concerns and potential.

Sessions include:
The Shale Revolution
Oil and Gas Leasing 101
Track Sessions throughout both days
Litigation and Legislative Updates
Economic Development Issues and Implications
