HOUSTON –Jackson Walker partners Paul Vrana and Craig Enochs were recently published in the book Energy and Environmental Project Finance Law and Taxation: New Investment Techniques.

Mr. Vrana received his B.S. from Oklahoma State University and his J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law.

Mr. Enochs represents companies in deregulated energy transactions. These include asset-based structured transactions, such as tolling, fuel supply, off-take and power purchase agreements; transactions for the purchase and sale of energy-related commodities, such as natural gas, electric power, coal, and renewable energy credits; transmission arrangements and transportation for these commodities; and commodity-based financial derivative transactions. Mr. Enochs also assists retail gas and electric marketers with their supply and sales transactions. In addition, he assists clients in developing and negotiating credit arrangements to minimize transaction risk, including guaranties, credit support addenda, netting and setoff agreements, and master netting agreements.
