As a general rule, all issues related to exploration and production of minerals require special attention, considering a specific character of legal regulation in this sector.

Subsoil users that perform activities under the contract on exploration, production, combined exploration, and production often have questions regarding documents for a competent authority for coordination and approval of design documents, time limits required for submission of the work program for approval, documents that certify transition from the exploration to  production stage, and actions required for the extension of the exploration period, including the timeframe required for evaluation of commercial discovery as well as many other questions.

We would like to offer our clients services on legal support of exploration and production operations in connection with execution of obligations under the subsoil use contract in cases when judicial protection of a subsoil user’s rights are needed.
