Bankruptcy and Regulated Energy Contracts

With the prospect of contract rejection again becoming a central consideration in several large energy bankruptcy cases, Ashley Parrish and Jim Bowe will discuss jurisdictional issues related to the potential rejection by a chapter 11 debtor of energy contracts that are subject to regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Non-debtor counterparties to FERC-regulated contracts should be familiar with these issues since public interest considerations and the imperative of maintaining regulated services can be decisive in a Bankruptcy Court’s determination on a motion to reject an executory regulated energy contract. The discussion will be twenty minutes followed by a brief time for Q&A.
