Oil & Gas
The oil and gas industry has an important role to play, both as a significant contributor to the Australian and regional economy, and in meeting growing global energy demands as a transitional fuel.
The industry continues to evolve, and organisations are expected to navigate a complex regulatory environment faced with geopolitical stress, investment cycles, market uncertainty and the need for greater environmental sustainability.
How can we help?
Having played a major role in almost all of the oil and gas projects in Australia, and many of the pre-eminent oil and gas projects in the Asia-Pacific region (including in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Vietnam and Myanmar), our team is led by industry experts with expertise along the entire oil and gas value chain.
Supporting you across all stages of the project
We have helped our oil and gas clients with strategic mergers and acquisitions, including takeovers, the financing of developments and acquisitions, complex taxation and construction disputes, the development of LNG projects (including floating LNG and LNG import projects), as well as on-shore coal seam gas and shale gas projects. We also work on key operational agreements, such as joint operating agreements, product lifting and sales and transport agreements and associated arrangements, such as EPC contracts.
Helping you navigate the complex political and regulatory issues
We understand the vast cross-jurisdictional issues, opportunities and challenges in the sector, keeping you up to date as the market rapidly evolves.
Managing risks and optimising performance
Our role as an adviser to a wide range of industry participants, including oil and gas companies, financiers and governments, gives us the depth of experience and understanding to help you meet your objectives.
In 2018, we were once again ranked as a leading firm in Chambers Global for Energy and Natural Resources in the Asia Pacific - a position we have held consistently.
