The energy sector – including oil, gas, hydro-electric power, and renewable resources – is perhaps the most complicated industry in the world.
Companies and individuals that operate in this industry, be it a global conglomerate or an individual, must work with local businesses and service providers, and are subject to extensive regulatory oversight. Often such actors enter into complex business arrangements, such as option agreements and joint venture agreements, with other players in the industry, and with the local community and government. The energy sector is complicated, cutthroat, and – often – lucrative.
