The Potential Impact of Dodd-Frank on Energy Derivatives

The stated purpose of Dodd-Frank is to reduce systemic risk, increase transparency of the financial markets and promote market integrity. Most likely, Dodd-Frank will affect energy companies in connection with their energy marketing, hedging and trading activities—in other words, in connection with energy “swaps.” The consequences will range up and down a sliding scale depending on a particular firm’s activities and the outcome of a federal rulemaking process still many months from completion.

Please join Mayer Brown partners Paul Astolfi and Paul Forrester as they discuss the implications for the energy industry including:

  • What energy swaps will (or might not) fall with the proposed forward contract exclusion?
  • What is the significant consequence of clearing?
  • Who might be a swap dealer?
  • What is the status of the required MOU with FERC regarding jurisdiction?
