Professor Oyewunmi’s Oil & Gas Law class recently hosted guest speaker and UND School of Law alum, Owen L. Anderson.

Anderson is a Professor and Distinguished Oil and Gas Scholar at the University of Texas School of Law in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy Law & Business. He spoke to the class about Gas Conservation Law and Regulation in North Dakota and the US generally, including approaches to pooling and unitization in relevant international contexts. The class was very honored to learn from his experiences and insights.

He is the Eugene Kuntz Chair Emeritus and the George Lynn Cross Research Professor Emeritus at the University of Oklahoma. He regularly teaches at the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney, and the University of Dundee. Recent revisions to the Model Oil and Gas Conservation Act of the Interstate Oil & Gas Compact Commission (“IOGCC”) were drafted by Professor Anderson.
