Energy & Offshore

Energy & Offshore

Energy, renewable resources and related exploration play an increasingly important role in today’s environment. Oil prices are on the rise, while the share taken by renewable energy sources is showing continuous growth.

Acting for various parties within this industry combined with local knowledge, gives our firm a thorough insight into this particular trade, which we deploy to our clients’ benefit. As a consequence, our team provides effective, commercially sound legal advice. We also assist with litigation in respect of building and conversion contracts for offshore equipment such as FPSO’s and PSV’s and other service vessels, as well as with construction and charter contracts. In addition we maintain a 24/7 casualty and emergency response, with a specific focus on this type of trade and the specific risks associated with it.

The related supply and distribution also has our focus. Few people realise that besides the supply of oil and gas through pipelines, also electricity transmitted through transmission lines falls within the scope of the legal concept of ‘transportation’.
