Practice Areas


Our Oil and Gas practice includes our involvement in several petrochemical, mining, oil and gas ventures.

The opening process adopted by the Venezuelan Government in 1997, permits private entities to participate in the Venezuelan oil business. Also, the Gas Law enacted in 1999 opened to the private sector new concessions in exploration and exploitation of natural gas.

We have experience in representing foreign companies in joint ventures and direct investment projects before PDVSA (Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A.), the national petroleum company and its affiliates and PEQUIVEN (Petroquímica de Venezuela, S.A.), the national petrochemical company .

Our experience includes the establishing of joint ventures, operations of concessions, as well as supply and operation contracts, BOT and BOO agreements.
