We have substantial experience in advising national regulators and national oil companies on issues of petroleum contracting, petroleum regulation and legal policy advice.
We have encountered most of the upstream petroleum law questions that can be asked, and while there are numerous potential answers to these questions, some more efficacious than others, the range of these potential answers is not unlimited. Leveraging some thirty-five years lived oil industry experience, we can reach the right answers rapidly.
