Glenn did a great job presenting a wide variety of material in an engaging manner.” – Floom Energy Law

This course will provide attendees with an in-depth review of how to work with natural gas contracts, mostly in the midstream space. The agenda will kick off with fundamental information on jurisdiction, regulations, rules, and enforcements when it comes to FERC transactions and then jump into the different types of gas agreements.  

Attendees will learn the regulatory framework for asset management agreements, pipeline precedent agreements, pipeline service agreements, and more. They will understand the key provisions of purchase and sale agreements, gathering and processing agreements, and interconnection agreements. Finally, this event will also review practitioner pointers for all contracts, as well as run through the key provisions for consideration and negotiation.  

The goal of the Natural Gas Contracts program is to provide a complete understanding of what goes into these contracts and what to be on the lookout for. Ultimately, attendees should feel more comfortable reviewing, questioning, discussing, and finalizing these agreements after completing this course.
