  • What are the key trends in global energy markets?
  • How can governments and their people secure a fair share in oil and gas deals while encouraging private investment?
  • What should investors do to optimise their capital?
  • How do governments set up and successfully manage a National Oil Company?
  • How can petroleum wealth be properly managed and how do governments establish, manage and run an effective Sovereign Wealth Fund?
  • Can hydrocarbons coexist with climate change policies?
  • How can low carbon energy be effectively integrated into the energy mix?
  • What are the core principles for durable oil and gas contracts?
  • What lessons can we learn from the life cycle of the North Sea and its decommissioning plan?
  • How can shale oil and gas development materialise outside the USA?
  • How to effectively regulate/deregulate electricity market?
  • How to best develop the local gas market?
  • How to draft sustainable energy and hydrocarbon policies?

These are just some of the questions we answer, working closely with clients to provide holistic solutions that meet specific needs.
