Energy: Oil and Gas
The oil and gas industry continues to be the mainstay of Nigeria’s economy and plays a veritable role as the highest source of Nigeria’s gross domestic product and export earnings. As a result of its pivotal role, the oil and gas industry attracts the influx of foreign and domestic investments. The industry is highly regulated with different agencies overseeing the activities within Nigeria.
Our lawyers have assisted oil service companies, investors, financial institutions, petrochemical producers and oil traders on all aspects of the oil and gas industry. We have reviewed and advised on the interpretation of petroleum laws and regulations, including oil prospective licences and oil mining leases, joint venture arrangements, production sharing contracts, technical and financing agreements. We have represented industry players and their partners before several courts (courts of first instance and appellate courts), arbitral tribunals and tax appeal tribunals.
