Jim Maclean joined Chevron after graduating from Dalhousie Law School and had extensive experience with agreements in Western Canada, the Canadian frontiers and with respect to A&D before leaving Chevron in 2005. He assumed his current role at Repsol in 2009 after an intervening period in a consulting practice that specialized in training, problem resolution and the negotiation of complex agreements.

Jim is best known for his work as the principal draftsman of the 1990 CAPL Operating Procedure and the subsequent 2007 and 2015 updates, as well as being the principal draftsman of the 1997 and 2015 CAPL Farmout & Royalty Procedure and the 2000 and pending 2017 CAPL Property Transfer Procedure.

Jim is an instructor of a number of industry courses on those documents, has been a guest lecturer in the University of Calgary land program since 1991 and is often invited to speak at industry events.

He has assisted with international energy projects in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Central America, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and the former Soviet Union.
