From ballot initiatives seeking to stop energy development in Colorado by creating a constitutional amendment that would impose a permanent 2,500 foot setback for oil and gas operations, to environmental groups taking FERC to court to try to stop the development of natural gas pipelines in Pennsylvania, assessing and managing political risk is becoming a priority for energy companies operating in the USA.

Energy Experts will Look at Political Risk in the U.S.

The University of Colorado Denver’s Business School’s Graduate Energy Management program, in conjunction with Houston-based PinkPetro, will host a free lunch presentation for energy professionals to be held in Denver, Thursday June 23, at 11:30 a.m.
