What We Do

We work to resolve our client’s challenges or concerns in the areas of regulated electric and gas utilities, and oil and gas . These range from highly complex electric and gas utility issues such as power generation (including fossil fuel, nuclear and renewable resources), site requirements, purchase power agreements, net and smart metering, energy efficiency issues, distribution and transmission, and cost recovery issues to more day-to-day matters, such as assisting with rate analyses to determine the most economical rate schedule available for you.

Within the oil & gas sector, we assist and solve matters relating to exploration and production, pipelines, refining, natural gas processing, marketing, land rights issues, boundary disputes, royalties, and other related areas.
