The FERRERE team has provided specialized advice at all levels of the crude oil production and distribution chain, including upstream, midstream and downstream.

Some of FERRERE’s practitioners have also worked in the public sector in Ecuador, in positions related to this area of activity, collaborating on legal reforms in hydrocarbons and mining matters.

The firm advises many of the sector’s world leaders: exploration companies, oil and gas deposit development and production companies, and others devoted to providing service to these industries.

In turn, this team represents financial institutions, private equity firms and government entities participating in the sector.  Its practitioners have in-depth knowledge on aspects composing the hydrocarbons value chain, and regularly advise clients in dealing with the different government entities in each of its jurisdictions.
