Oil law

Installing a petroleum unit of prospection, research and exploitation of hydrocarbons is a legally heavy operation. A special regulation was set to organize procurement of authorizations and licenses for prospection, research and exploitation.

After authorization is obtained, an exploitation concession may be granted to the oil company, the terms of which are strictly governed by the Hydrocarbons Code. To get it, it is be necessary to understand the applicable real estate regulation, the one relating to storage and transportation of petroleum, available fiscal schemes, customs proceedings and the special exchange regulation.

In this context, we support oil companies to get different licenses and authorizations related to their activities before the concerned governmental entities.

We also assist them during stages of implementation and acivity by producing the required legal information having regard to the multitude of regulations impacting each stage.
