Based on the extensive experience of our lawyers, Ţuca Zbârcea & Asociaţii provide legal advice in electricity, oil, gas and the mining industry. In the course of their experience, our lawyers have worked on the main aspects related to the energy sector: concessions, distribution and supply agreements, tariffs, licenses, regulatory surveillance.
The Romanian natural gas and energy sectors have undergone significant changes in recent years, involving the privatization of the main operators and the implementation of EU guidelines designed to harmonize the Romanian legal and regulatory environment with those of the EU with a view to complete market liberalization, set as a goal for 2007.
This ongoing process of major transformation, leading to the deregulation of the market, has resulted in a complex range of background issues raised by the required privatization of the main operators, in terms of concessions, clarification on property rights over network related assets, pipeline interconnection agreements, structured financing, trading strategies, ongoing regulation and operational strategies.
Our lawyers have participated in a variety of major projects in these areas, having advised on a wide range of oil and gas related matters and on various types of contracts used in exploration, drilling, transportation, distribution, refining and selling of oil and gas, as well as in electricity procurement, generation, transmission, supply and distribution.
