Pipeline Magazine: Managing Risks and Eyeing Regulation



HOUSTON, April 15, 2013 --In a recent Pipeline Magazine supplement -- Pipeline Presents…Unconventionals -- Baker Botts Partner Sean Korney gives his view on the burgeoning unconventional landscape in oil and gas surrounding the Middle East.

In responding to questions posed by Pipeline Magazine editors, Korney describes how big the unconventional business in the Middle East is for the Baker Botts.

Korney notes that the unconventional business in the Middle East is increasingly an area of interest. As with elsewhere, there is less and less easy oil and easy gas. In addition, countries are looking to boost oil exports for income purposes and to boost gas production for energy sufficiency purposes. Oman, UAE, KSA and Jordan are good examples of countries pursuing unconventional projects. It is very much viewed as a growing area.
