Hogan Lovells Energy Team Wins 'Law Firm of the Year' Award
Hogan Lovells has been named Law Firm of the Year at the European Gas Awards for our work on the Shah Deniz 2 Project and Southern Gas Corridor.
We acted as sole Project Counsel on the US$45 billion Shah Deniz 2 Gas Project and Southern Gas Corridor, representing the Shah Deniz Consortium (BP, SOCAR, Statoil (to be replaced by Petronas), Total (who have sold to TPAO), Lukoil, NICO and TPAO). The project is set to fundamentally change the energy map of Europe, connecting Caspian gas supplies for the first time with European gas markets and hailed as "the contract of the 21st Century" by Azerbaijan's President.
Energy and Natural Resources Group lawyers from our Projects, Corporate and Regulatory teams in London, Brussels, Rome and Hamburg have been engaged on the project since 2010, which reached Final Investment Decision in December 2013. This project demonstrates the breadth of experience the Hogan Lovells team can bring to bear on oil & gas mega-projects, working with a range of industry stakeholders.
The fourth Annual European Gas Awards, held in Vienna on 28 January, celebrate the contribution, dedication and excellence of key individuals and projects in the European gas sector, bringing together over 200 gas executives.
