Latham lawyers discuss the forces driving transformation in the market and the key legal and regulatory issues.

By Tommy Beaudreau, Joel Beauvais, Joel Mack, Ryan Maierson, and Janice Schneider

Water management is becoming increasingly critical amid increasing oil and gas production in the Permian Basin and other regions of the United States. In particular, many companies are now seeking to manage larger quantities of produced water, and/or to secure water supplies for drilling activities — leading them to develop new infrastructure and new business models focused on water transport, treatment, and reuse.

Latham & Watkins lawyers discuss how these rapid changes in the US oil and gas industry are creating opportunities for new entrants, while spurring a flurry of M&A and capital markets activity. The 60-minute program will cover a number of key issues related to water management in oil and gas production, including:

  • State and federal policies affecting produced water discharge, injection, and reuse
  • Seismicity concerns
  • Property and liability issues
  • Innovative infrastructure financing opportunities
