Greg Nibert Discusses Energy and Species on Federal Lands

Greg NibertGreg Nibert, a Roswell lawyer who focuses his practice on oil and gas law, presented a lecture that delves into a controversy generated by proposed Endangered Species Act listings on Oct. 4 at the UNM School of Law. His presentation was part of the school's 2011 Natural Resources Speaker Series.

The title of the talk was, “Obstacles to Access onto Federal Lands for Exploration, Drilling and Development of Oil and Gas: Implications of Potential Endangered Species Act Listings.”

Nibert is a partner in the Roswell office of Hinkle, Hensley, Shanor & Martin, where he has practiced since 1983. He will bring this depth of practice in his discussion about the impact to oil and gas production in southeastern New Mexico in the event the Dunes sagebrush lizard receives an Endangered Species Act listing.

The public lecture was sponsored by the UNM School of Law's Natural Resources Program, Utton Transboundary Resources Center, Environmental Law Society and the Natural Resources Journal. The UNM School of Law gratefully acknowledges the support provided for this program by the Natural Resources, Energy and Environmental Law Section of the State Bar of New Mexico.
