Norton Rose boosts Australian Oil and Gas practice

Norton Rose Australia is boosting its oil and gas practice with the relocation of partner Alex Cull from Singapore to Perth. Cull has worked in the field of oil and gas in the Asia Pacific region for over 12 years, and has particular expertise in upstream operations, asset and company acquisitions and sales, trading, and commercialising gas. Cull said: “Australia is one of only a handful of global hot spots being targeted for inward investment, especially from energy hungry North Asia clients. In addition to the conventional offshore projects, and booming coal seam gas, we are seeing shale and underground coal gasification projects emerge. Australia is also a pioneer in projects involving floating liquefied natural gas. It's an exciting time for the industry.” Vincent Dwyer, Head of Energy, Norton Rose Australia commented: “His move together with Ashley Wright joining the Singapore office is a significant part of our strategy for the continued growth of our energy team in Asia Pacific. It will support the broader regional expansion and provide further strength to our energy team in Australia.”
