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 three former Alberta Energy Regulator employees who is teaching the course on June 24, 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 and Rob Cruickshank – two 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.
The instructors will answer specific regulatory questions and be able to provide unfiltered regulatory advice.
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.
The four-hour live course is designed to guide participants through the regulatory issues from the pre-deal preparation to post-transaction implementation. Attendees will understand how regulatory, ESG, and policy awareness are integral to the business considerations of any A&D transaction in the upstream exploration, production or midstream markets.
