In the background, several more tables are occupied by similarly dressed individuals.The Oil, Gas and Mineral Law Section has over 800 members, who practice or are interested in various aspects of energy law. The Section sponsors nine monthly lunch programs each year, which qualify for CLE credit. Programs are typically held on the fourth Thursday of the month at The Petroleum Club, with speakers making presentations on a variety of energy topics.
