GPA’s status as the largest law firm in the Eastern Province, and one of the largest law firms in the Kingdom, makes it a major player in the energy and petrochemicals field.  GPA’s Dammam office grew with the oil industry and it frequently advises the major petroleum companies in the Eastern Province on all aspects of Saudi Law.  As the only law firm in the Eastern Province with an international association, GPA is able to offer clients a unique and unrivalled combination of local and international expertise.

GPA’s Energy Practice has grown in parallel with the oil boom and has thus accumulated rich experience in the local, regional and international petroleum and petrochemical industries.

Our practice encompasses the full range of corporate and regulatory matters affecting the energy sector, including trade, privatisations, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, environmental regulation, litigation and arbitration in both domestic and international markets.

GPA has been active in both upstream and downstream projects including those relating to on-land and offshore pipelines, refining facilities, mobile offshore jack-up rigs and gas sales arrangements.  In terms of existing clients we represent many significant Saudi business groups and numerous Fortune 500 international companies.
