Energy and natural resources

Within: Energy and natural resources

For many, ‘the energy firm “par excellence”’, Guevara & Gutiérrez S.C has ‘sophsiticated knowledge of hydrocarbons’ and an increasing role in the mining sector. The practice is co-led by Enrique Barrios and Ramiro Guevara from Santa Cruz and La Paz, respectively. Although it handles some electricity matters, oil and gas is the department’s key strength and Santa Cruz-based Rodolfo Mercado is also very busy in this area. Barrios has considerable experience in project finance, gas export arrangements and acting for investors on upstream and downstream contracts with state-owned gas company YPFB. The team’s mid-stream capabilities were enhanced by the arrival of senior associate Vania Busch from YPFB Transierra in February 2017; her fellow senior associate Julio Landivar is also noted. Practice clients include Repsol, Petrobras Bolivia, YPF and Serpetbol.
