Expert Witness

Helping to resolve differences of opinion

Our experts are skilled at delivering technical arguments to non-technical readers. Our success in translating technical issues into understandable reports for legal firms and courts is testimony to our expertise. We understand that the duty of an expert witness is to the court, and our reputation for independence supports this commitment.

RISC has provided expert witness support to court proceedings in several areas, including:

  • Gas contract disputes
  • Licence disputes
  • Unitisation across boundaries and borders
  • Redeterminations
  • Project and contractual disputes

We leverage our knowledge of oil and gas basins, projects, statutory and regulatory approvals, compliance requirements, subsurface development, capital and operating costs, and markets to provide independent ‘sanity checks’ on information provided by proponents. We then construct reports and commentary using language and formatting that is accessible to legal professionals and others without an in-depth technical knowledge of the energy industry.
