Companies that explore for, develop, produce, store, market, transport, process and sell energy resources are among the most capital-intensive in the world. The need to fund acquisitions and exploration and development operations, infrastructure and capital expenditure, means that access to the capital markets continues to be vitally important. Our lawyers have extensive experience representing energy clients, including large and small producers, as well as commercial and investment banks, in all aspects of the capital-raising process.
Energy companies have access to a wide range of financial products. However, no single segment of the financial markets can fulfill all of an entity's needs. Companies are best served by advisors who can competently assess the choice of markets that are most suitable to them, depending on their stage of growth and their particular needs at the time. Experience in the public and private equity markets, together with thorough knowledge of the syndicated lending and specialty finance markets, is paramount.
