Petroleum and Maritime Law
We are highly specialized in the drafting and perfection of Joint Venture Agreements, acquisitions/leases of land for oil pipelines and other activities; obtaining relevant government licenses, permits and approvals, where necessary particularly in the areas of renewal, negotiation/arbitration and re-validation of Oil Prospecting Licenses (OPLs), Oil Mining Leases (OMLs), and Production
Sharing Contracts/Agreements. Recently, Rayfield Associates acted as Outside Counsel for Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited in the processing, finalizing and legal documentation of the renewal and retention of Mobil's Oil mining leases (OMLs). We also litigate and conduct defenses in respect of oil spillage and environmental pollution claims.
