Transmission and Pipeline Projects

  • Counsel to a private developer in connection with its development of a 500 mile overhead transmission line in the Western United States, responsible for all engineering, procurement and construction agreements. Project cost estimate exceeds $1 billion.
  • Counsel to a private developer in connection with its development of over 200 miles of overhead transmission line in Texas, along with two new major interconnection substations, taking lead responsibility for all engineering, procurement and construction agreements relating to the same. Project will unlock significant wind and solar energy resources that will otherwise be stranded from development.
  • Counsel to an “anchor shipper” in connection with its participation in a merchant, direct-current high-voltage transmission line that is the first project to receive FERC approval for use of the anchor shipper development model for an electric transmission line.
  • Counsel to a California municipality in connection with its development of a 32-mile transmission line to connect a geothermal power project to a main section of the nearby power grid.
  • Counsel to The Imperial Irrigation District (California Water District) in connection with the engineering, procurement and construction of 11-mile transmission line.
  • Counsel to an independent power producer (“IPP”) in connection with its development of six (6) sub-river, sub-surface transmission lines to be installed 25 feet below the bed of the Delaware River, from Delaware into New Jersey.  The majority of this complex project will be constructed from aboard a barge in the river, utilizing unique technology designed to minimize unknown subsurface conditions risk.
  • Counsel to an international IPP on transaction involving complete development of multi-million dollar, 1046 kilometer, cross-Andean gas pipeline project in Chile and Argentina, including negotiation of turnkey EPC Agreement for the pipeline and separate, stand-alone Bulk Pipe Purchase Agreement that was subsequently assigned to and “wrapped” by the EPC Contractor (Techint E&C).  This complex transaction involved coverage of legal issues in three different regional jurisdictions in two different countries, with co-equity ownership interests held by companies based in the United States, Belgium, Chile and Argentina.  Representation included all contract negotiations, contract implementation, claims management and “trouble-shooting” legal support during construction. This project has been fully constructed and is now in operation.
  • Counsel to an IPP in connection with construction of gas pipeline and related metering systems in support of development of gas-fired power project in New Jersey.
