Jumoke Fajemirokun has extensive transactional and project development experience in the energy, infrastructure and mining space. She was formerly key member of the energy, natural resources and infrastructure practice of a leading full-service law firm in Nigeria. She later worked with the World Bank in Washington DC where she provided support to the World Bank Group’s Sanctions Board in reviewing integrity compliance issues that arise in the procurement and execution of infrastructure projects financed by the World Bank.
She routinely advises clients on policy, regulatory, transactional and project development issues across the energy sector value chain, especially in relation to gas commercialisation projects. She has advised on the development of gas processing plants, petrochemical plants, LNG plants, refineries, power plants and pipelines.
She has also advised on several fuel/energy supply and offtake agreements and on the acquisition and divesture of interests in oil and gas and mining assets. She is well-versed in identifying and analysing transaction and projects risks and in developing contracting strategies to mitigate such risks. She also has a deep understanding of the legal and regulatory framework governing energy and natural resources project, which she brings to bear in the advice that she renders.
Her recent deal experience includes advising a project sponsor on the development of a $3.5bn petrochemical complex, a global LNG midstream infrastructure company on the development of an integrated LNG-to-power project; a Nigerian exploration and production company on the negotiation of production sharing contracts with the Government of Uganda during the country’s first competitive licensing round in Uganda, a gas producer on the supply of gas produced offshore Nigeria to a power plant in Ghana via the West African Gas Pipeline, and a Fortune 500 global oil service company on its contractor financing transactions with a number of upstream oil and gas operators.
