Oil and Gas
We provide legal services to Brazilian and foreign companies involved in the drilling and production of oil and gas with expertise in the regulatory aspects involving the National Oil Natural Gas and Bio-fuels Agency (ANP), as well as tax issues before the federal and state public organs, especially for the temporary admission of equipment under the ‘Special Customs Regime for Importation and Exportation of Goods Destined for Research Activities and Drilling of Oil and National Gas Deposits’ (REPETRO).
We assist concessionaires and goods and service providers in:
- Obtaining permissions, concessions and authorizations from the relevant organs and regulatory agencies;
- Transactions relating to the importation, storage and distribution of parts and services;
- Alteration of sector specific contracts, including contracts signed with Petrobras, either through direct negotiation or participation in bidding processes.
We also provide preventive advice and work with litigation, environmental, labor and civil matters relating to the area.
