In addition, the workshop will kick-off with a session on globalization and protectionism discussing how recent geopolitical changes, including Brexit and the Trump Presidency, will impact the oil & gas industry. Another session will dive deep into the recent developments and trends in common and civil law on issues that arise under the suite of AIPN Model Agreements. Lastly, you won’t want to miss the panel session covering corporate sustainability efforts, including contract disclosure, human rights clauses in JOAs and the Modern Slavery Act, and the impact they have on business.
