Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy

Our energy team offer expert advice to clients engaged in a wide variety of activities, from oil exploration on the Norwegian continental shelf, to traditional wind and hydropower projects, to development of cutting-edge renewable energy solutions. We also have extensive experience in cleantech transactions, particularly those involving battery, hydrogen and solar technology.

Actors on the Norwegian continental shelf turn to Wikborg Rein for advice throughout the project lifecycle. We counsel E&P companies and oil service providers on a host of matters, including regulatory requirements, joint ventures, drilling and service contracts, infrastructure projects, development plans, transport and sale of hydrocarbons, and facility decommissioning. 

We act for market leaders on hydro, wind, district heating, grid and solar projects in Norway, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. We provide advice on transactions, financing, and the regulatory frameworks for power production, environmental protection, grid management, PPAs and international and domestic transmission. The energy team's near continuous involvement in Norwegian wind and hydro power transactions has allowed us to develop a particularly deep knowledge of our domestic market.

The energy team is made up of lawyers located in the firm's Oslo, Bergen, London and Shanghai offices, giving us a unique ability to offer seamless advice on both Norwegian and international energy matters.  The team draws upon the firm's M&A, capital markets, contract and dispute resolution lawyers to insure that clients are able to get specialized advice whenever necessary.
