Oil and Gas



Fasken’s Oil & Gas group works across the value chain – upstream, midstream and downstream.  We help E&P companies with tenures and licensing, production activities, procurement and facility operations.  We work with midstream companies to get new projects permitted, financed and built, with marketers on product transportation and sales, with service companies on commercial agreements, and with utilities on rates and rate design, commercial agreements and new products.


More than 65 Fasken lawyers focus on the oil and gas industry. We take an interdisciplinary approach to our client work. Many transactions benefit from strategic finance, regulatory, diplomatic and litigation expertise, and many client contacts appreciate that we work efficiently on transactions while keeping them informed of larger industry and economic implications.


Our oil and gas clients include governments and government entities, independent and national oil and gas companies, marketers, multi-lateral agencies, equity and debt sponsors, utilities, property owners and developers. We also work with commodities producers and traders, contractors, exploration and transportation companies.


We provide insight on upstream, midstream and downstream commercial activity and regulation and have extensive and direct experience in the development of pipeline, terminal, storage and export projects for liquefied natural gas and other products.


Additionally, our firm’s footprint supports a robust capital markets practice where we advise multinational clients on energy listings, equity finance and M&A transactions across numerous markets.  When there are opportunities to privatize national enterprises, we work with investors, suppliers and governments across several continents to develop policy and legal structures that align with future interests.
