Oil and Gas: Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)
We collaborate with clients on projects at all levels of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) value chain and project life cycle. From LNG liquefaction and regasification, to floating LNG and export projects, we have provided innovative solutions in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. We solve your toughest legal problems by bringing the right people together to work with you as part of your team.
We help you mitigate risk across the value chain so that you can focus on doing business. The LNG group at Hogan Lovells supports the entire LNG project life cycle — from project inception and financing, through permitting, construction, and operational matters. We also address legal issues related to shipping, short-term LNG trading, long-term sales, and purchase agreements.
