Power, utilities and renewable energy

SASLO advises clients across power generation and transmission, water, utilities and renewable energy sectors. We advise both public utilities and their clients across a wide variety of matters, involving litigation and service disputes, various transactions such as debt and stock offerings, real estate transactions, service agreements and regulatory compliance, to name a few. Our notable clients are some of the main public utilities’ companies in Oman.

We have acted for various consortia on a number of greenfield IWP and IPP projects, on both the sponsors' and lenders' end, on matters pertaining to financing, term sheet and security package and other obligations in respect to the proposed financing of the projects in the pre-bid stage, including amongst others, compliance with the Sector Law, review of project agreements, permits for the construction and operation of the plants, corporate governance matters, applicable rules and regulations relating to closed and public joint stock companies in Oman and IPO matters.

We fully understand the the Government’s vision to diversify fuel sources for power generation as well as diversify Oman’s national economy. We have market-leading experience in the legal, regulatory and commercial challenges in Oman that would be expected on any power, utilities or renewable energy project, which allows us to pre-empt and provide strategic solutions to overcome these challenges should they arise.

Unlike many firms, our partners are equally comfortable advising governments and/or  private sector and therefore you can be assured of a high degree of flexible and committed partner involvement. SASLO has over the years developed unrivalled experience advising on Omani energy and infrastructure projects including the water and power sector. The most recent include advising the winning consortium in relation to the Barka V and Ghubra III IWPs.
