Energy & Natural Resources

Turkey’s rapid grown and youthful demographics have made it one of the fastest growing energy markets in the world.  Turkey wishes to realize its own energy security; and to use its geographical advantages to become a regional energy “hub”. Whilst Turkey may not have many of its own oil and gas reserves, it is rich in natural resources and many mining companies are seeking to exploit this potential.

Akol’s team operates at the heart of the energy and natural resources industries in Turkey. We assemble specialist teams to provide the highest quality advice tailored to our clients' individual needs in this regulated sector. Energy and natural resource companies, financial institutions and investors turn to us to successfully navigate a wide range of challenges across the full spectrum of the sector. 

We provide comprehensive services to our clients in the following areas:

  • Downstream
  • LNG
  • Natural Resources
  • Pipelines
  • Power distribution
  • Refining and petrochemicals 
  • Renewable and alternative energy (inc. Hydro, Wind, Solar, Geothermal)
  • Upstream oil and gas
  • Water/Wastewater projects

Recognized for our clear focus on supporting our energy and natural resources clients to reach the successful completion of their projects and transactions, we offer the benefit of deep local market knowledge and expertise.

Our team has in-house mining experience and provides practical legal advice through each stage of the mining project life cycle, from tendering, licensing, and permissions through to operation, equipment procurement and decommissioning and everything in between. Experience is on hand to resolve mining disputes, including those with necessary MIGEM involvement.
