(Sept. 1) – Houston-based Baker Botts said Thursday that it is representing the Government of Afghanistan on long-term planning for a public-private partnership for a major gas to power project that will support rebuilding of the Afghan natural gas sector.
The project, which is funded by the United State Agency for International Development (USAID), could be worth as much as $600 million.
Dubai, London and Hong Kong attorneys from Baker Botts’ global projects practice worked on the deal.
The firm provided advice on the legal and contractual structure of the partnership, structured to construct and operate a commercial natural gas gathering and processing facility to serve several gas fields in northern Afghanistan.
