For more than 25 years the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators, and the Institute for Energy Law have co-sponsored the annual Short Courses on International Oil & Gas Law, Contracts, and Negotiations. The Short Courses cover a wide variety of contractual and transactional subjects from Discovery to Development to Decommissioning encountered in the international oil and gas industry covered by numerous experienced industry experts. The Sponsors are hopeful of again offering the Short Courses during Fall 2021.

In preparation for the resumption of the Short Courses, the Sponsors are presenting a series of three webinars with Short Course faculty that will touch on subjects covered in much greater detail during the Short Courses.

Webinar begins at 8am PST, 9am MST, 10am CST, 11am EST
Duration: 1.5 hours

The third webinar in the series will briefly review:

  • The role and importance of Unitization in the international oil and gas industry
