Oil and Gas

We have extensive experience in assisting foreign and local clients in a wide range of oil and gas matters. The firm is experienced in drafting and negotiating all types of oil and gas-related agreements, including farm-in/farm-out, joint operating, unitization, concession, distribution and purchase and sale agreements. We also assist clients in strategic and contentious regulatory matters, mainly before ANP.

Most relevant actions include monitoring the issuance of new regulations for the sector, assistance to oil companies in all of their communications with ANP, assistance on meetings with regulatory bodies and participation in public hearings relating to ANP regulations and those of other authorities. We represent clients before 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 also assist with the development of complex corporate structures for Brazilian and foreign companies, setting up and obtaining governmental authorizations to do business in Brazil, as well as providing legal assistance with respect to day-to-day business.
