Following the President's re-election, there is much discussion in the media, among policy makers, and among business leaders on the future of the Keystone XL pipeline and the impact of National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review on energy projects generally. This panel of King & Spalding attorneys, energy sector participants, and Congressional staff will take a timely look at the financial impact of NEPA on the energy sector, explore the root causes of pervasive NEPA obstacles to energy project development, and discuss ideas and strategies for managing NEPA review and litigation, including seeking legislative reforms.
