Oil and Gas

Oil and gas continues to be central to the energy supply chain

The growing demand for oil and gas in developing countries has ensured prices, although volatile, remain high. These prices ensure continuous activity and investment in this sector across the supply chain.

Allen & Overy's market leading Oil & Gas practice advises governments and NOCs (National Oil Companies), IOCs (International Oil Companies), Independent Oil and Gas Companies, and funders (debt and equity) on all aspects of the supply chain. We cover upstream (exploration and production), midstream (storage and transportation), downstream (fuels and lubricants, marketing and refining, retail and chemicals) and LNG.

Our integrated practice advises on project development, M&A (public and private), funding (equity, debt and Islamic financing), energy and emissions trading and litigation. All transactions are supported by our market leading experts in taxation, antitrust, regulatory, environment and employment, to name but a few.
