We facilitate joint venture partnerships for Oil, Gas and CCS businesses

Entering into a JV is a complicated process that can be highly successful and worthwhile. It involves strategic, contractual planning that all parties must comply with. Our Joint Venture Facilitators and Lawyers can guide you through the JV process at any stage, from connecting you with potential JV partners and devising the best operating model, to legal documentation, tax-efficiency and exit plans that safely end joint ventures.

What is a Joint Venture Partnership?

A JV partnership is when two or more individuals or companies join together to execute a specific project or task. Companies have different reasons for wanting to partner with other companies:

  • To develop new products
  • To enter new markets
  • To tap into a company’s expertise, technical support or resources
  • To share costs and risks
  • To join with a competitor to optimise profits

KUM Offshore has an extensive global database of oil, gas and carbon capture companies that are currently looking for innovative products, new opportunities and joint ventures. We invite you to make use of our valuable contacts and commercial expertise.

Our cross-border expertise unites parties

Businesses from different cultures often have different views, values and priorities than you. But for a JV to be operational and successful, both parties essentially need a single culture, a joint road map and shared management. We use our cross-border expertise and international network of law firms to align values, define objectives and facilitate your JV strategy.


KUM Offshore gains an in-depth understanding of how both companies function. We then devise a clear-cut strategy that optimises profits and we guide you through the whole process, monitoring and adapting the operating model as needed. Should you come across a complex situation further down the line, we mediate on your behalf to resolve differences. The key complexities that KUM Offshore works with you to resolve from the outset are:

  • Do you understand your partner company’s agenda, values and goals?
  • What are your desired outcomes?
  • Who is doing what and when?
  • Do both parties agree with the new operational business model?
  • How do we ensure this is a legally binding agreement?
  • How will it be monitored and adapted?
  • How will you resolve issues that arise?
