The Energy and Projects (EP) Team combines power, oil, and gas experts with profound experience across the entire value chain of both sub-sectors of the firm.

The team leverages its sector approach to deliver quality and pragmatic legal advisory services to its clientele. The team members are not only conversant with prevailing issues in the Nigerian energy industry but are also at the forefront of providing suitable legal advice to participants in the energy value chain, such as government agencies; foreign and local investors; indigenous companies; service
companies; and energy project financiers.

JEE‘s team has considerable experience in oil and gas transactions and advises companies operating in the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors. It also provides services covering Nigerian Content Reorganisation and Energy Finance.

The power sector reforms and the unbundling of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) have increased opportunities for the participation of the private sector in the electricity market. JEE‘s Energy and Project Practice has developed requisite competence in this sector, having been involved in various power transactions involving companies operating within the Nigerian electricity market. We have provided legal advisory services to several power-generating companies, off-takers, and investors in the areas of drafting and reviewing transaction agreements for the power sector, including Power Purchase Agreements, Grid Connection Agreements, Use of Network Agreements, and other ancillary agreements such as Feedstock Supply Agreements (FSAs) and Engineering Procurement Contracts (EPCs) for power plants.

Furthermore, the unit renders investor and transaction support services in the areas of licensing, financing, and compliance with applicable legislation, regulations, and governmental requirements to a cross-section of electricity market participants.

Our Energy & Projects team acted as Legal Adviser for the public-private partnership between the Lagos State Government (LASG) and the Orange Island Development Company Limited for the dredging, reclamation, development, and management of 150 hectares of land from the Lagos Lagoon for the creation of Orange Island.
