What we do
Our oil & gas team helps clients meet the complex trade challenges they face Our oil & gas trading team has many years of experience working with government owned producers, leading oil traders and energy multinationals. This has given us critical insight into how to put together deals, assess risks and advise on trading issues and the financing, transport and supply of oil and gas.
We advise on trading and operational disputes, covering matters of quality, quantity, contamination and shortage, and on letter of credit disputes and contracts for physical sale and purchase. Our derivatives practice has grown out of our traditional strengths in the international trading market. Management of commodity price, freight, currency exchange and interest risks have become an everyday part of this sophisticated market. We also advise on a wide range of derivatives products.
Oil is one of the world’s most traded commodities and presents many challenges, not least the close association between the oil price and the politics of some of the world’s most volatile regions. This instability continues to contribute to the high level of market speculation in relation to pricing and future availability.
