Legal Services Provider of the Year
White & Case LLP
White & Case offers clients a truly holistic legal overview of the oil and gas sector. Whether seeking project finance, decommissioning, securing acreage or negotiating terms with governments, clients benefit from a full range of global services on all major disciplines.
Despite price pressures affecting the industry, White & Case continues to lead the market in legal services. The team successfully established the first Sirkuk Issuance Programme in Saudi Arabia, for up to $10bn, and assisted TEPCO and Chubu Electric form JERA−a 50-50 joint business venture. This coalition is now the world's largest liquified natural gas buyer.
Other highlights include Chrysaor's successful $3bn acquisition of assets in the North Sea—making it the leading UK independent E&P company. White & Case also represented Freeport LNG on its $16bn multi-train natural gas liquefaction facility in Texas and its subsidiary Floating Liquefied Natural Gas Liquefaction 2 in a project worth $1.125bn in investment grade project bonds.
White & Case is also committed to ensuring corporate and social responsibility. In July 2016, it signed the UN Global Compact, the world's largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative, and promotes the Sustainable Development Goals.
From a company founded just over 100 years ago in New York, it has grown into a truly world-leading cross-border firm.
