RDL has been highly recommended by AsiaLaw Profiles 2013 for the practice area of Energy & Natural Resources and well-rated by Asia Pacific Legal 500 in 2016, 2017 and 2019 for Projects and Energy.
Our practice in this area encompasses the power generation, supply of utilities and the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors. We service both oil companies and their many contractors and partners. Experienced in both upstream and downstream activities in the oil and gas industries, we advise clients at all stages of the business from the initial investment, licensing and regulatory requirements and the establishment of local entities, to the tendering and bidding for and the securing of contracts.
We have negotiated and drafted agreements to construct power plants as well as contracts to supply utilities. In the event of disputes, we have a proven track record in arbitration and litigation to resolve them.
Our experience extends to drafting agreements relating to renewable energy, such as those under the Kyoto Protocol.
