Deepwater drilling podcast

  • Press Releases 5 octobre 2010 5 octobre 2010

This year’s experiences in the Gulf of Mexico have highlighted the evolving nature of physical, political, reputational and legal risks in the oil & gas industry as it pursues resources in increasingly challenging environments.

Health & safety regulation and directors' liabilities as well as liability and indemnity provisions engaged in by companies operating offshore have taken on new importance in the light of the magnitude of risk, government response and public sentiment. Commercially, the events have created dislocation from suspensions or terminations across the drilling and service industry in addition to the immediate implications in terms of management of risks in the sector.

This detailed and informative podcast created by Clyde & Co is designed to review and analyse the legal implications following the Deepwater explosion and look at new regulations that may be imposed on those who operate in this market. The need to understand the intricacies and pitfalls of now doing business in this industry is of the utmost importance.

Clyde & Co's rapidly expanding energy team specialise in upstream and downstream dispute resolution, health & safety regulation, global compliance, project finance and upstream M&A.

DISCLAIMER: Clyde & Co podcasts are designed to be a general guide for listeners. They are not intended to contain definitive legal advice which should instead be sought, as appropriate, in relation to any particular matter covered in the broadcast.
