Energy & Resources


Our Energy, Oil and Gas practice provides top quality legal advice and transactional support to domestic and international companies operating in the oil and gas, geothermal, and renewable energy sectors.  As a relatively compact firm, we are able to offer advice across the entire range of practice areas, thereby allowing us to deliver outstanding legal and commercial results for our clients in a practical and cost effective way.

Among the services we offer are drafting and reviewing oil & gas agreements, advising on the regulatory regime, government policy and guidelines, interpreting newly issued statutory provisions, and providing representation before the regulatory agencies. We advise on such matters as the sale and acquisition of assets; land titles; packaging of bids; oil, gas and geothermal rights; drilling and operating agreements; joint venture agreements; oil, gas and geothermal energy purchase and sale contracts; and supply and transportation contracts.

In the power sector, we have been intimately involved in a series of project finance deals as part of the Indonesian Government’s 10,000MW energy sector development program. We have amassed particular expertise in the geothermal sector, where we have been involved in the financing and development of geothermal power projects in Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi and other parts of the country. In addition, we advised a leading independent geothermal power producer on in its global issuance of USD 350 million of Senior Secured Notes under Rule 144A to fund capacity expansion. We are currently representing another geothermal firm in relation to its development of a project in eastern Indonesia.

In the oil and gas sector, significant mandates that have been entrusted to us include advising an oil and gas firm on its IPO;  representing another oil and gas firm in its proposed acquisition of a partner in a production sharing contract; and advising state-owned energy firms PT Pertamina Hulu Energi and PT Pertamina Gas on their USD 42 million acquisition of PT Medco E&P Tuban.

We are currently assisting a prominent oil and gas firm on its proposed IPO, and another in its appeal to the District Court against a finding of collusive tendering by the competition authority.
