Successful Planning Meetings for 2013 Shale Plays Conference

Planning meetings were held in Fort Worth’s Petroleum Club on November 29 and Houston’s Downtown Club at Houston Center on November 30 to allow conference co-chairs David Poole (Range Resources) and Barclay Nicholson (Fulbright & Jaworski) to discuss and collect ideas for topics and speakers at next year’s Law of Shale Plays Conference. The conference, the IEL’s fourth on shale, will take place at the Fort Worth Hilton on June 6 and 7, 2013. Next year’s conference will be aimed at the experienced practitioner in shale plays in all shale-prone areas of the United States.

Attendees at the planning meetings, which included a web conference during the Houston meeting, enjoyed lively discussions on current issues, and left the conference chairs with a substantial menu of ideas and speaker suggestions. The third meeting in the series will take place in the heart of the Marcellus shale area at Fulbright’s Southpointe (Canonsburg, Pa.) offices over lunch on Thursday, January 10.
