Energy, Oil & Gas
In 2009, we assisted a bidder in the conduct of due diligence, review of bidding documents, and submission to the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM) of the winning bid for the privatization of the 0.8MW Amlan Hydropower Plant, located in Amlan, Dumaguete.
Since 2009, we have been advising a major renewable energy company on regulatory requirements and compliance issues. We have also been assisting the client in the review of documents crucial to its operations, such as human resource policies and various supply and service agreements, including engineering, procurement and construction contracts. We also advised the client on the restructuring and transfer of its drilling operations, the review and standardization of all its drilling contracts and the acquisition and sale of its drilling rigs. We provided the client with the legal framework for the permitting process for its solar, wind, and geothermal projects and conducted seminars to update its various units/departments on current legal requirements, particularly, on environmental and health laws, local and national permitting requirements, labor and human resource, construction permits, taxation, and corporate governance, among other things. We have also been overseeing the company’s various litigation cases since 2009, relating to labor, local tax assessments, ejectment and criminal cases.
