Oil & Gas
Oil & Gas
We are not just an Oil & Gas team – we are an Oil & Gas firm. It’s in our genetic code.
Across all legal disciplines, our lawyers are oil & gas specialists who understand the commercial, technical and operational context, not just the law.
Our clients include major oil companies, independents and new entrants; service companies and contractors in every segment of the oilfield services industry; banks and private equity.
We have worked with the industry for the past 40 years – in the UK and internationally - through the peaks and troughs of the oil price cycle. The challenges that face the North Sea in its maturity are significant, but the cost base is being restructured and upstream assets and service companies will be transferred to those who are able to continue to invest. The future will be more commercial, collaborative and entrepreneurial.
As our clients have developed their global reach, we have too. For example, we recently acted for E&P clients in the negotiation of the concession, joint venture and infrastructure agreements required for a $12 billion project offshore Egypt and for other E&P clients in relation to their recent disposal of upstream oil & gas interests in Romania to a private equity group for in excess of $40 million. Our M&A team covers every geographical area important to the industry. For local law advice globally, we can call on our established alliances, giving our clients access to the very best legal firms in other countries.
