Energy and Natural Resources

The Ince Energy Group offers expert know how in planning, development and operation of projects in the field of renewable, conventional and unconventional energy (both upstream and downstream) and natural resources. The Ince Energy team has advised in prominent energy and natural resources projects in Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Korea and several renewable energy projects. The group also advises extensively in Europe, Africa, South America and the Indian sub-continent.

In oil and gas matters, the global Energy Group can offer expert advice on a range of Oil & Gas related matters, involving upstream and downstream work and including concessions and licensing, exploration, drilling, storage, transport, distribution, refining, pipeline construction and downstream marketing.

The team has many years of experience in drafting and negotiating contracts in the power sectors and resolving disputes which may arise during the lifecycle of these projects, including tendering and procurement, project development, construction and financing through to the refinancing, restructuring and sale and purchase of assets, as well as the associated commercial risks. Our credentials are founded on acting, in most cases, as the lead or principal counsel, for the key proponents of a power project such as the sponsors, financiers or contractors, including advising on nuclear projects in the UK, India, China and other jurisdictions.

The team works with all levels of stakeholders, including local and international commercial lenders, development banks, multi-lateral agencies, ECAs, sponsors, developers, EPC contractors and sub-contractors, as well as off-takers, distributors and governments. A number of our energy lawyers have either worked or been seconded to some of the world’s leading energy companies. This enables us to advise clients based on first-hand experience of the industry. Our in-depth understanding of the underlying business means that we can see issues from the perspective of all sides. We also draw on the expertise of our insurance and dispute resolution practices. Having seen where things can go wrong, we are well placed to help you manage the commercial risks, anticipate problems and plan ways to minimise their impact.
