While there are many steps in the production of energy, two of the most crucial are the movement of resources through pipelines and storage in special facilities. Many disputes can arise during this process that can bring production to a halt.
The development of oil and gas pipelines and storage facilities always involves several parties and companies. There are strict regulations in place to guide the transportation and storage of petroleum products that make for complicated disputes.
The most common pipeline and storage disputes include:
Pipeline and storage disputes can arise between an oil and gas company and a number of other parties like landowners, contractors, other companies, and government agencies, among others. Because of the complexities of oil and gas regulations and contracts, resolving pipeline and storage disputes is not an easy matter. An experienced pipeline and storage dispute attorney will carefully analyze the situation and all relevant contracts and determine the best course of action.
Sometimes pipeline and storage disputes can be resolved through negotiations. Other times, contracts state all disputes must be resolved through arbitration. Finally, some disputes can only be resolved through court proceedings. Burford Perry LLP attorneys have experience in all three forums.
There is no single way to resolve pipeline and storage disputes. To determine how to proceed in a cost-effective way while still protecting your interests, you need an experienced oil and gas lawyer. At Burford Perry LLP, our lawyers work to aggressively protect the best interests of our clients.
