Oil and gas is a global business, requiring an understanding of a complex international landscape.
Despite rising capital costs and challenging market conditions, global super-majors continue to invest in and develop world class assets. Australia is home to some of the world’s largest oil and gas projects, including ten LNG projects, and as major projects enter production, Australia has become the leading global exporter of LNG.
Led by some of the industry’s most highly regarded experts, our oil and gas team provides strategic advice and comprehensive support across all aspects of oil and gas projects. From planning and structuring through to financing, development, operation, trading and disposals, we assist clients through the entire lifecycle of their investments.
We have extensive experience on oil and gas projects and transactions across Australia, Papua New Guinea, Asia and internationally. Our expertise includes joint ventures, operating arrangements, major construction and procurement contracts, transportation and supply arrangements, sharing of facilities and infrastructure, project approvals (including planning, environmental and maritime approvals), and acquisitions and disposals.
We are at the forefront of some of the most high-profile public international law matters in our region, assisting with the resolution of complex maritime boundary disputes affecting the development of oil and gas resources. We also assist with regulatory investigations relating to oil and gas projects, and dispute resolution including international arbitration.
