Oil and gas law is the area of law that governs oil and gas production. Oil and gas laws determine who owns the right to mine for oil and gas. It determines what conditions miners have to follow when they harvest oil and gas. The field of oil and gas law is a mix of common law, statutory law and administrative regulations that govern the mining and harvesting of these natural resources in Senegal.

In addition to negotiating contracts, oil and gas law also involves securing the necessary permits before drilling. Most of the time, a driller must secure a permit from a state agency in order to begin new work. When drilling is off-shore or on federal land, a federal government agency may have the authority to issue permits for drilling. Oil and gas attorneys must know what entity to approach to request a permit and how to appropriately make a permit application on behalf of their client.

After taking an Oil & Gas course offered in her final year of law school, Shelby discovered a passion for the intricacies of the petroleum industry. She spent over five years focusing on that field, performing title work, leasing, and other multi-part contract issues. Shelby returned to Larson Law Firm in 2017 in order to expand her practice into other areas of property, contracts, and business issues.
