Energy Forum: Decommissioning

The global market for oil & gas decommissioning is expected to continue to surge over the next five years and beyond. As production fields mature, offshore infrastructure ages, the energy market transition to alternative energy and decarbonization, and extreme weather persists, operators are beginning to focus on the costly, legally fraught and technically complicated challenges of decommissioning.

Join King & Spalding, industry experts, government regulators, policy advisors and commercial operators for our Energy Forum – Decommissioning as we discuss the major challenges of decommissioning oilfield assets in today’s legal and regulatory environment. Sharing their different perspectives, our panelists will address best practices in managing abandonment liabilities, lessons learned from decommissioning disputes, and the key legal and regulatory issues driving the current discussion on decommissioning. Tentative speakers and panelists include representatives of the American Petroleum Institute (API), Cantium, Chevron, Fieldwood Energy, Lockton Partners, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
