Natural Resources and Energy

We have extensive experience in renewable energy projects in Japan. We represent both domestic and foreign project sponsors, contractors and financiers. Based on our extensive knowledge and experience, we provide full range services to foreign investors, including those related to structuring investment schemes, and can also provide advice to foreign financiers based on our plentiful experience in project finance in Japan.

We also have deep knowledge of, and extensive experience in, IPP projects in Japan, and provide advice regarding operating, financing or investing in such IPP projects by domestic and foreign companies.
For natural resources and energy development, operation and production projects of conventional and unconventional (shale) gas and LNG, we advise upstream companies in negotiating concession agreements, product sharing agreements with the state and/or state-owned companies, and joint operation or joint venture agreement with other operators and investors. We also have vast experience in assisting utilities companies regarding negotiation and formation of long term sales and purchase agreements for conventional and unconventional gas, LNG and other natural resources. We also advise owners and investors regarding pipeline projects in oil producing countries, including those in the Middle East region.
