Energy & Infrastructure Regulation

​​​We advise private and public sector clients on all aspects of energy and infrastructure regulation. Our energy-focused experience includes advising on:

  • the regulatory and procurement law environment and preparing draft legislation to facilitate the procurement of energy generated by private parties;
  • energy pricing regulation;
  • e-licensing and other regulatory requirements relating to the construction and operation of captive power facilities;
  • the requirements for upstream and downstream oil and gas, petroleum pipeline tariffs, gas pricing and nuclear energy regulation; and
  • all relevant energy sector regulation including the Electricity Regulation Act (ERA), the Electricity Regulations on New Generation Capacity and the relevant ministerial determinations made under section 34 of the ERA, the Gas Act, the Petroleum Pipelines Act, the National Energy Regulator Act, the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Act, and all relevant policy including the Integrated Resources Plan.

As it relates to infrastructure, we also regularly advise on ports regulation. Our experience includes making submissions on the National Ports Bill, commenting on regulations and directives subsequently published in terms of the National Ports Act, and advising on licensing of existing terminals and on various regulatory issues relating to the establishment, operation and regulation of ports.
