Applying Oil and Gas Skill Sets to Renewable Power Transactions

The session will take a comparative perspective addressing similarities and differences between oil and gas and renewables in three discreet practice areas with three different speakers. The three topics will be: (1) purchase and sale agreements, contrasting the sale of wind & solar projects (including tax equity considerations) with the sale of oil & gas assets; (2) construction agreements, discussing similarities and differences between these agreements as used for oil and gas and renewables projects; and (3) real property agreements, comparing oil and gas and renewables lease instruments. This high-level survey of cross-over skills will assist traditional energy practitioners in applying their skill sets to new energy matters.
