Dentons is a recognized leader in the area of energy and natural resources in Kazakhstan. Over the past two decades, our lawyers have gained a profound expertise in the energy and natural resources sector, primarily focused on mining and oil and gas projects. We advise major petroleum, mining and service companies, as well as financial institutions, on all facets of their activity in Kazakhstan and other CIS countries.

A large part of our practice involves representing major petroleum and mining companies in negotiations with the Kazakhstan government and governmental agencies and providing subsequent support for their ongoing local legal needs in the country. Our work in these areas makes us one of the most experienced international law firms in the natural resources sector in Kazakhstan. As a result of our well established reputation, we have handled the biggest and most prestigious project in country such as the Karachaganak Project, the North Caspian Project, and recently – the Tengiz Project, and have served as preferred counsel to major oil and gas and mining companies, for over 25 years.

We have a dedicated Energy and Natural Resources practice group, led by partner Aigoul Kenjebayeva who is consistently singled out as the top practitioner in Kazakhstan in this field, consisting of specialists in subsoil use law.
