Water Management in Oil and Gas Production: Market Drivers and Legal Issues – Webcast

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


As US oil and gas production grows dramatically, particularly in the Permian Basin, water management is becoming increasingly critical. Companies are developing new infrastructure and new business models to address water transport, treatment, and reuse — as they seek to secure water supplies for drilling activities and to manage growing quantities of produced water. These rapid changes are creating opportunities for new entrants as well as new activity in the M&A and capital markets.

Please join us for a discussion of the forces driving this transformation and the key legal and regulatory issues, including:

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