Current Unitization and Litigation Issues in the Haynesville Shale

 

            A general discussion of several current unitization, oil and gas and environmental litigation issues relating to the Haynesville Shale play in North Louisiana. Each of these issues could take more than the allotted time to discuss in detail and due to the involvement of the presenter in several ongoing litigation proceedings, it is the intention of the presenter to provide his general comments, analysis, and reference to applicable Commissioner of Conservation rules and regulations relating to unitization in the Haynesville Shale and recent legal statutes and jurisprudence relating to oil and gas leasing, title, and environmental litigation in connection with the development of the Haynesville Shale play, and to solicit and respond to questions from the audience.

BIOGRAPHY OF MATTHEW (“Matt”) J. RANDAZZO, III


 


 Matt Randazzo is now a partner in the Lafayette office of the law firm of Gordon, Arata, McCollam, Duplantis & Eagan, L.L.P. after spending the first twenty-three years of his law practice in New Orleans. Matt’s law practice encompasses all areas of oil and gas and environmental related matters from “the cradle to the grave and beyond.” In recent years, Matt has prepared new oil and gas lease forms for use throughout Louisiana. Matt is an title examiner and has negotiated and drafted several option, lease, farmout, farmin, participation, exploration, seismic and joint operating agreements relating to traditional and resource oil and gas prospects in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and offshore Gulf of Mexico. Matt often serves as lead counsel in several complex multi-party oil and gas and title litigation and arbitration matters in state and federal courts in Louisiana and Texas. Matt has participated in numerous unitization hearings before the Commissioner of Conservation involving oil and gas fields throughout Louisiana and has represented clients before the MMS. Matt is a frequent speaker on oil and gas, environmental, governmental relations and business topics. Matt is a trained mediator and is available to serve as an arbitrator or mediator in oil and gas, environmental, insurance or commercial disputes. After managing his family’s wholesale and retail gasoline distributorship business for six years, in less than two and one-half years, Matt graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Political Science (with a strong emphasis on government and business courses) in 1981 from Loyola University and obtained his Juris Doctor Degree, Cum Laude, from Tulane Law School in 1984.
