When oil and gas pipeline developers encounter complex regulatory issues and controversies, they turn to Bracewell. We are a preeminent pipeline development firm, with deep regulatory experience that is buttressed by top-flight environmental, transactional, financing and litigation practices.

“Bracewell attorneys are experts in pipeline regulatory matters and have experience of experience working within the industry,” notes Chambers USA (2021).

We have helped clients in regulatory approval for multibillion oil and gas projects and transactions. For example, we represented Phillips 66 in the regulatory process of commencing service on the Gray Oak pipeline project, including a new storage service that was added in response to market conditions resulting in part from the COVID-19 pandemic. We also provided regulatory advice in the development of the $2 billion cross-border natural gas pipeline system by Nexus Gas Transmission and the $2 billion Permian Highway Pipeline Project by Kinder Morgan.
