Global Gas and LNG Practice

Clean Energy Projects and Carbon Management Our lawyers are entrenched in the diverse range of international and national environmental and climate change laws and regulations that create the framework for reducing carbon emissions globally. We understand that the gas industry is under pressure to become “cleaner and greener” by ensuring lower methane emissions in order to play a role in the future global energy mix. We help our clients in the gas sector to comply with the increasingly complex climate change and ESG legislation, regulation and policy and to secure efficiency improvements. Many of our clients have set their own carbon emissions reduction targets and we are working alongside them to achieve those targets. Unique among law firms, Bracewell’s Policy Resolution Group houses substantive excellence on policy developments, as well as key relationships with people inside the US federal government shaping the relevant policies, including the White House, the Council of Environmental Quality, the Congressional committees of substantive jurisdiction, and the key Executive Branch agencies.

Our lawyers have advised on:

• Development of environmental and social governance policies • Compliance with clean energy standards • Carbon capture and storage, membrane separation and concentration, and absorption technologies advice • Patent prosecutions • Sustainability bond offerings • Acquisition of carbon capture technology and facilities • US tax incentives
