Rapid growth of oil and gas plays has spurred an energy renaissance in the U.S. – and with this growth, a number of legal challenges for the companies operating in these plays. Nowhere is this truer than in North Dakota's Bakken Shale, which has transformed the state's economy and made it the nation's second largest producer of oil behind Texas.

We invite you to join us for a program about the unique issues and challenges associated with operating in the Bakken. Our Haynes and Boone speakers will be joined by North Dakota lawyers John W. Morrison of Crowley Fleck and Lawrence Bender of Fredrikson & Byron who have counseled companies operating in the Bakken for many years. 

Moderator: Michael J. Mazzone - Haynes and Boone


John W. Morrison - Crowley Fleck rel="noopener noreferrer" - Bismarck, ND
Lawrence Bender - Fredrikson & Byron, P.A. - Bismarck, ND

Topics will include:

  • Challenges operators face in the Bakken Shale
  • Insurance and indemnity provisions in MSAs - including the so-called “Hydrofracking Exclusion” 
  • Issues for the operator and non-ops when there is no JOA
