Oil and Gas

Our energy team is active in all aspects of the value chain in the oil and gas sector.

We have proven expertise in matters relating to exploration and production. In particular, we assist our clients on the acquisition and disposal of participations in upstream projects, such as oil and gas fields in the Dutch North Sea.

We also have strong experience in drafting, negotiating and advising on commercial contracts in the oil and gas sector. We regularly assist our diverse clients in drafting and (re)negotiating agreements regarding supply, depletion, transport, storage, swap, liquefied natural gas (LNG) throughput and tolling.

Furthermore, we provide assistance to our clients in their relations with gas transportation companies and LNG terminals, together with advice on regulatory (such as third party access) and pipeline issues which also feature highly in our work.
