The Harry L. Reed Oil & Gas Law Institute of South Texas College of Law Houston welcomes you to the “The Pipeline,” the oil and gas law blog that we teachers and students associated with the Institute hope will provide an outlet for dispatches on topics of oil and gas law and economics.

In addition, The Pipeline will deliver lengthier pieces on more abstract questions that come up in oil and gas law. While we will initially focus on upstream matters, we want to eventually spread to mid- and downstream topics.
