We create contractual frameworks (including the implementation of the relevant procurement strategy for the project) that ensure that the different components of a major gas project, and the players involved in the project, work seamlessly together.

• Commercial Agreements Expertise — Our lawyers have experience with, and regularly negotiate and draft, the core commercial agreements that underlie the natural gas industry, whether gas transportation agreements, storage agreements, purchases and sales agreements, gas processing, LNG sale and purchase agreements (SPAs), LNG facility tolling agreements, NGL-related agreements, including processing, transportation and fractionation, and other agreements, whether based on standardized forms or bespoke agreements negotiated for particular transactions. We know the business and we know how the business is done by our clients. That knowledge allows us to help our clients advance transactions and projects based on intimate knowledge and experience with the applicable agreements. • Regulatory Expertise — Bracewell’s globally recognized regulatory, compliance and public law specialists provide critical guidance into the evolving regulatory environment in which gas projects and transactions are taking place. We understand our clients’ obligations under applicable regulations, develop models that are compatible with those regulations, and align our clients’ commercial objectives with the applicable regulatory regime.
