Lone Star College to present seminar on Offshore Energy Legal Frameworks


HOUSTON (April 3, 2012) –  Lone Star Corporate College will present the “From the U.S. to Brazil: Contrasts in Offshore Energy Legal Frameworks” professional development seminar as part of the ongoing Lone Star College Networking Lunch Series.

The seminar will be held on Friday, April 27 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Lone Star Community Building, 5000 Research Forest Drive in The Woodlands.

The seminar is non-technical and is geared toward anyone interested in learning the background of the energy industry, including new hires to the energy industry and non-technical energy company employees. In addition, technical energy company employees who want to expand their industry perspective would also benefit from the seminar, which will explain how the new legal framework has recently affected the Brazilian oil and gas sector.

Led by presenter Claudio A. Pinho, attendees will find out what business and job opportunities are related to the oil reserves found in Brazil, what countries like the U.S. can learn from Brazil, and what legal framework is necessary for safe oil and gas exploration.

Pinho is a professor of constitutional and energy law at the Instituto Belo Horizonte de Ensino Superior in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He is also a partner with Araujo Pinho Law Firm, where he specializes in the areas of constitutional, tax, economic law, and oil and gas regulations.
