A Must-Attend Session at HB’s Shale Gas Drilling Operations Conference

HB is proud to announce a highly experienced and qualified faculty for its Shale Gas Drilling Operations Conference, which is being presented on Oct. 3 in New York City in collaboration with The West LegalEd Center, a Thomson Reuters business.
