Much like the midstream, the upstream oil & gas sector faces continued headwinds in the new year, with numerous challenges from the new administration and its executive agencies. Sidley lawyers will discuss the January 27 Climate Crisis Executive Order, whether we can expect additional future actions focused on imposing further regulation on the upstream oil and gas industry, and how E&P companies can respond to these challenges. Panelists will address:
- A high-level summary of the upstream-specific provisions of the January 27 Climate Crisis Executive Order and Department of Interior Temporary Suspension of Delegated Authority with respect to fossil fuel authorizations
- Additional climate initiatives anticipated from under the current administration
- How E&P and industry groups can prepare to respond
- Samuel Boxerman, Partner, Environmental
- Richard Klingler, Partner, Supreme Court and Appellate
- Katy Lukaszewski, Partner, Energy M&A
- U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (Retired), Partner, Government Strategies
