Within: Project finance

Energy is a key practice area for Bracewell LLP and the team continued to be active for sponsors and lenders on a variety of projects across the US. High-value mandates included New York-based Ron Erlichman advising Advanced Power Energy Holdings on the financing of the $1.3bn South Field Energy facility in Ohio, and New York-based Jeris Brunette assisting Kinder Morgan with the back-leverage financing of a 49% interest in Elba Liquefaction Company. In another major deal, Houston-based Thomas Tomlinson and Robin Miles acted for Yuhuang Chemical on a $800m loan facility for the construction of a methanol plant in Louisiana. The practice is led from Houston by Alan Rafte and Jessica Adkins; Adkins focuses on the renewable energy sector, where her work included acting (with Erlichman) for lenders to a wind project being developed by Macquarie Capital in Texas, and assisting a hedge provider with a hedging agreement with Goldwind Americas for the 160MW Rattlesnake wind power project in Texas. The team was further strengthened by the arrival of New York-based duo Nicolai Sarad and Fernando Rodriguez Marin in March 2018 from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP.
