2014 Vancouver Annual Conference
 
The Energy and Natural Resources Committee proposed a session in conjunction with the Tax Law and International Construction Projects Committees entitled “Key Aspects of Pipeline Development”. This 3 hour session will look into the structuring of the various contracts and obtaining of authorizations needed to develop a pipeline and then explore various issues arising during its construction.
 
The keynote address will be given by the Honorable Jean Charest, Partner with McCarthy Tetrault in Montreal and former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada and Premier of Quebec.
 
Two round-tables will follow with an array of international speakers who will be responding to a mock case study on the development and then construction of an international pipeline.
