Oil, Gas & LNG

Whilst ever-growing demand for energy continues to create great opportunity, legal and commercial risks across the oil and gas lifecycle continue to require solutions. Access to new resources, fluctuating prices, technology and infrastructure requirements, regulatory policies, difficult financial markets, environmental and political influences, counter-party disputes and other pressures need to be successfully handled. We help clients across the oil and gas sector to find commercial legal solutions.

Our expert lawyers have a proven track record in helping major clients to deliver some of the world’s leading oil and gas projects across the full upstream and downstream lifecycle, from licensing and exploration though to production, sale and decommissioning.
Oil & gas is a core area of focus for BLP. Our lawyers are highly skilled at helping oil & gas companies, financial institutions and suppliers to take advantage of opportunities, overcome challenges and protect their interests. Over 100 of our lawyers have acted on over 750 oil and gas projects in over 40 countries, with a cumulative value of over $100bn. In addition to independently-ranked expertise in legal disciplines such as Finance, Projects and Infrastructure, Corporate, Regulatory, Dispute Resolution and Real Estate, we bring specific commercial experience of the opportunities faced within the oil and gas industry. Senior members of the team, which includes former counsel of companies such as BP and BG Group, have between them spent more than 25 years working in-house within oil & gas companies, and the team leader is independently ranked as one of the world’s leading practitioners in energy law. In the words of a major client reporting to the legal directory Legal 500, BLP has “quality that can be put before a board of international oil and gas companies with confidence”.
Oil & Gas is just one part of BLP’s wider energy & natural resources capability, which extends to include all forms of power generation, mining and water. We were named Mining Law Firm of the Year 2012 in both Singapore and London, have delivered over $10bn of water related transactions in UK and the Middle East, and have acted on hundreds of projects relating to supply, transmission, distribution and offtake of power.
Our results-focused approach, geographic presence in traditional and emerging energy markets, and experience of negotiating the complex risks facing the hydrocarbon sector, combined with the quality assurance of working with an international law firm that has won five Law Firm of the Year awards in a decade, makes BLP an excellent choice of legal adviser to help you achieve your commercial objectives.
