Pratt’s Energy Law Report highlights Jordan Collins’ Analysis of Interior Department’s Draft Offshore Oil and Gas Leasing Analysis

The April 2015 edition of Pratt’s Energy Law Report features an article from ML Strategies’ Jordan Collins on the Department of the Interior’s Five Year Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2017-2022.
