Legacy Asset Litigation: Wyoming’s Perpetual Liability Problem and How to Avoid it.
Jeff Pope, Senior Associate & Macrina Sharpe, Associate, Holland & Hart LLP

Six years ago, the Wyoming Supreme Court established a doctrine that has created perpetual liability for oil and gas operators, among others, who have long since ceased operations in the state. This ruling has spawned dozens of lawsuits and even more settlements that have cost former operators tens of millions of dollars. The doctrine also represents the potential for more litigation and further risk associated with legacy assets. This presentation will explore the origin of Wyoming’s growing legacy asset litigation problem and provide solutions for how to avoid the trap in the future.
