Lessons from a new e-learning course on navigating Canada’s oil and gas regulatory process can be applied to all dealings with regulatory frameworks within North America.
Mark Taylor, one of four former Alberta Energy Regulator employees who is teaching the course on March 11, said the lessons gleamed from Navigating the energy regulator when conducting acquisitions and divestitures can help with any future dealings with the regulators.
“It’s easy to waste days, weeks and months on things that didn’t matter,” said Taylor. “This course is going to give you proven tips from people who have worked the system from both sides that will reduce the cost of your transaction.”
Joining Taylor on the half-day course are Alanda Allum, Rob Cruickshank and Jeff Schatz – all experts on Canadian upstream oil and gas.
The course is ideal for A&D professionals within oil and gas companies and in related sectors, such as banking, investment and land management.
Participants will have the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with the panel.
“We’ll answer specific regulatory questions and be able to provide our unfiltered regulatory advice,” said Schatz.
Areas covered include developing and implementing a post-transaction liability management plan, assessing how regulatory needs, ESG and policy awareness are integral when considering deals and more.
