Oil and Gas, Natural Resources

The oil and gas sector of Kazakhstan is the biggest and the most dynamic sector.  Ongoing evaluation of discovered oil deposits with significant hydrocarbon reserves in the Kazakhstan sector of the Caspian Sea is underway. The estimated hydrocarbon potential of the Republic of Kazakhstan is substantial as compared to world reserves. Oil and gas is the key economy sector of Kazakhstan, which ensures the country’s national and energy security.

We provide consultations to various national and international companies with the help of our highly qualified professionals with expert knowledge of this sector, its specifics and good background in exploration, production, processing, marketing, transportation and use of natural resources. We consult on legal issues of exploration of deposits, receipt of development and production licenses as well as construction of pipelines, transportation, general corporate issues and other related issues, including transaction structuring.

The signature feature of the firm is that our lawyers are retained on a regular basis as experts for the development of laws and regulations on energy and natural resources.
