Doerner lawyers understand the unique legal issues that can create either challenges or opportunities for clients engaged in the exploration, production, processing, transportation, and marketing of hydrocarbons and other energy resources.   That is particularly true when the issues involve regulatory concerns.  We provide energy and natural resource companies with legal advice and representation regarding state and federal environmental requirements, and have represented clients in matters before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. 

Upstream, midstream and downstream clients throughout the mid-continent area rely on our regulatory advice in all aspects of pipeline and other linear infrastructure projects, from local permitting for construction to compliance with federal regulations during operation.  

We are vigilant at staying abreast of new and emerging laws, regulations and policies involving issues such as climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration.  Doerner energy lawyers offer regulatory advice on these and other evolving concerns to ensure that our clients remain competitive, innovative and in compliance.
