The energy and natural resource industry is global in scale and wildly diverse, although levels of availability and consumption are major factors whether producing coal or gold or lumber. Natural resources, including oil, gas and mining, is a vital sector for many countries but also one full of challenges brought about by ever-changing market conditions, technology and regulations. We have a dedicated team of lawyers across our global network, with specialist knowledge of the sector, covering mining, oil, gas and renewable energy to name a few.

Recent work includes the high profile corporate restructure in Cayman of Ocean Rig, the biggest corporate restructuring the island has seen, acting as Jersey counsel to a Canadian gold mining company in its investment in a Jersey incorporated AIM listed company and acting as Mauritius counsel to Azure Power Energy Ltd, on its issue of USD 500 million 5.50% senior notes to be listed on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited.

In this brief update, we note three sector issues that are of particular relevance right now, and how the offshore region is contributing to their development.
