Oil & Gas / Pipeline Practice

In our oil and gas practice, our litigators and regulatory attorneys bring a combined base of knowledge and experience to represent clients in a wide range of issues involving petroleum and chemical product pipelines. Our attorneys have conducted pipeline contamination and incident investigations; handled litigation relating to pipeline injection issues, pipeline ruptures, reserves ownership issues, royalty disputes and indemnity matters; and resolved complex cases involving mixed plume hydrocarbon contamination from hundreds of active or abandoned pipelines, coordination of extensive pipeline investigations and characterizations of mixed plumes, and funding of environmental remediation trusts to cover future costs.

In addition to oil and gas litigation, the Firm’s attorneys have a wide variety of transactional experience drafting and addressing pipeline removal agreements, relocation/lowering of pipelines, drilling and title issues, negotiation of joint venture and operating agreements, pipeline rights-of-way matters, easement amendments, pipeline encroachments, access and testing issues, as well as lease, contract, indemnity and litigation issues associated with pipeline and crude/chemical transport.
