TMSL AIPN

TMSL AIPN This is the Student Club of the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators at the Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

The AIPN was founded in 1981 to enhance the professionalism of cross-border energy negotiators throughout the world. It is now composed of more than 4,500 members in more than 110 countries, representing numerous international oil and gas companies, host governments, law firms and academic institutions. AIPN members come from a variety of disciplines: commercial, technical, academic and legal. The association hosts several quality events each year that provide networking opportunities and provide valuable educational programs and tools. In sum, the AIPN aims to help the international energy negotiator be better prepared to meet the challenges of today's competitive global energy market. AIPN dues and event fees are priced lower than other professional associations to encourage widespread member involvement. One reason AIPN is able to do this is because of the exceptional financial support from numerous companies who make up its Corporate Sponsors. To help support its staff, AIPN relies on a board of committed volunteers. Members of the AIPN Board of Directors are committed to participate actively in AIPN business and activities during their terms of office. The board is elected annually, with the aim of it being representative of our global membership. AIPN's staff, based in Houston, coordinates activities and provides administrative support to the Board of Directors. Active membership in the association is available to anyone who is engaged in, or who has an interest in engaging in, international negotiations work. Student membership is available to students enrolled in a university of institution of higher learning. All AIPN members are assigned to one of AIPN’s eight regional chapters: Asia; Australia/Pacific; Canada; CIS; Europe/Africa; Latin America; Middle East; and United States.

Mission: The Association of International Petroleum Negotiators is an independent not-for-profit professional membership association that supports international energy negotiators around the world and enhances their effectiveness and professionalism in the international energy community.

Lessons From IHS CERAWeek: What We Heard on Conference's Day 1

Good news: Oil’s going back to $80 a barrel! The bad news: Not until 2020, according to the International Energy Agency #CERAWeek

So what do 2,800 or so of the world’s elite energy minds talk about when they gather at Houston’s IHS CERAWeek energy conference? Here’s a taste of what we heard on Monday.

Daniel Yergin: Energy industry at its “day of reckoning”

This has happened before. In the 1930s, Texas suddenly overflowed with oil. Now, the rapid-drilling shale oil producers in Texas and North Dakota that brought on the bulk of the world’s supply growth in recent years are dealing with the self-inflicted wounds of overproduction and high levels of debt.

Prominent energy expert Daniel Yergin believes the energy industry’s day of reckoning is here, amid the sudden and unrelenting rush of crude that has drowned oil markets for a year and a half.

Ignoring Energy Policy Could Be a Campaign Mistake

As we have seen in the past, the success of candidates will hinge on their ability to promote issues that foster economic and job growth while ensuring safety and the protection of our environment. This can be achieved through the promotion of energy infrastructure and production, which will contribute to U.S. self-sufficiency, stimulate the economy, create well-paying jobs, and drive significant emissions reductions.

Pick a poll, any poll – CBS News/New York Times, ABC News/Washington Post, CNN/ORC, NBC News/Wall Street Journal, Quinnipiac University, Gallup. There’s a prevailing trend: The economy remains the …

SCOTUS to review EPA authority to regulate greenhouse gases for power plants - ABA Journal

[T]he Times says a ruling against the EPA won't stop its efforts to develop the power plant rules under different provisions of the Clean Air Act. Jonas Monast, director of the climate and energy program at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, made the same point in a statement issued by the university's press office. "The core components of the president’s Climate Action Plan should therefore remain intact, regardless of how the Supreme Court resolves this case," he said.

Updated: The U.S. Supreme Court today agreed to consider the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants and other stationary sources. The U.S. Supreme Court accepted six cert petitions on the topic, but agreed to consider just one issue, report SCOTUSb...

Our emotions are largely fed by fear. Oil & gas opponents know this and they play to our weaknesses. But, what if we apply to their tactics to our beloved best friends?

Former BP America chief says company knew blowout was possible

“As an engineer I knew a blowout was possible,” Lamar McKay, the former president of BP America, testified in federal court in New Orleans.

British oil giant BP had identified a deep-water blowout in the Gulf of Mexico as a "high-level" risk prior to the 2010 oil spill, the former chief representative of the company's U.S. operations testified Tuesday at a civil trial over the disaster.

Obama pipeline decision may preview energy policy

On its surface, it's a choice between the promise of jobs and economic growth and environmental concerns. But it's also become a proxy for a broader fight over American energy consumption and climate change, amplified by Superstorm Sandy and the conclusion of an election that was all about the economy.

WASHINGTON (AP) â It's a decision President Barack Obama put off during the 2012 campaign, but now that he's won a second term, his next move on a proposed oil pipeline between the U.S. and Canada may signal how he will deal with climate and energy issues in the four years ahead. Obama is fa...

Governors call for renewing wind energy tax credit

The wind energy production tax credit is due to expire at the end of the year. Its extension stalled in Congress this summer amid fierce opposition from some conservative House Republicans.

The fate of a tax credit that advocates say is needed to maintain tens of thousands of wind energy jobs will be decided during high-stakes, last-minute negotiations between President Obama and House Republicans over fiscal issues, officials said this week. The wind energy production tax credit is du...

Who might lead Energy, Interior and EPA under Romney, Obama

When voters head to the ballot box November 6, they won’t just be electing a president for the next four years — they also effectively will select a whole slew of government leaders who will chart the U.S. course on energy and environmental issues.

Although neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney has specifically said who would lead the departments of Energy and Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency under their watches, the candidates have given some signals about the kinds of people they would choose.

Eagle Ford emerges as a top play

Oil interests applaud the quick change that turned the Eagle Ford Shale from a natural gas play into a crude oil bonanza. And the drillers are eyeing a similar move at another familiar West Texas spot.

"The Eagle Ford Shale has emerged as the most significant opportunity for unconventionals in North America and perhaps the world," said David Roberts, executive vice president of COO of Marathon Oil Corp.
