ウィートストーンLNGプロジェクト
Micah was part of the team which advised on the acquisition of a 10 percent interest in the petroleum licenses covering the Wheatstone/Iago gas fields located off the shores of Western Australia, and an 8 percent interest in the related Wheatstone Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility, by the joint venture entity PE Wheatstone Pty Ltd. During this complex, four-year project, Micah advised clients on all aspects of long-term LNG procurement, including confidentiality arrangements, key term sheets, heads of agreement, LNG sale and purchase agreements, extensions, amendments and price reviews.
