Our established presence in the international oil and gas industry is the result of a thorough understanding of the sector's intricacies and associated risks. We have a particular strength with respect to transactions in Africa.


Experience includes advising multilateral and commercial lenders in the upstream oil and gas space on a range of structured finance transactions including RBL structures and associated derivatives.

We also advise oil and gas companies on acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, strategic alliances, equity fundraisings and listings, licencing and royalties, construction and infrastructure projects and on commercial agreements for exploration, production and processing including joint operating agreement, production sharing contracts, off-take arrangements and farm-in and farm-out agreements.

  • Advising HSBC, IFC, Standard Chartered Bank and Nedbank on a $500 million RBL facility for independent oil & gas company Petroceltic International. This role included advising lenders on all aspects of this financing and co-ordinating lenders' counsel in 13 jurisdictions
  • Advising Cove Energy plc on its acquisition of certain oil and gas assets in Mozambique and Tanzania which constituted a reverse takeover under the AIM Rules along with its related £42 million fund-raising and subsequent secondary fundraisings totalling more than £100 million. Our advice culminated in advising the company on its £1.2 billion sale to PTTEP Africa Investment

We also have unique construction, operational and asset management experience of mid and downstream activities including storage, purification, transmission and distribution.
