Energy & Infrastructure

Any economy stagnates without investment in infrastructure. In Russia the emphasis has been on the development of oil and gas infrastructure, from pipelines to refining facilities.

We at Danilov & Partners have helped clients to draft, negotiate and settle contracts for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of energy infrastructure. We are able to do so in an efficient and commercial way while at the same time making sure the clients’ interests are fully protected.

Our experience includes successful negotiations with such contractors and licensors as Toyo Engineering Corporation (Japan), TechnipFMC (France), Wison (China), Univation Technologies (USA), Cryogenic Gas Technologies (USA) and KBR Technology (USA).

We have also advised Russian companies on infrastructure construction projects outside Russia. For example, we assisted a client in forming a consortium and participating in a tender for the construction and operation of a pipeline in South Asia, and a tender for the construction of a refinery in Africa.
