Herbert Smith, Fulbright & Jaworski, Mallesons Stephen Jaques, Vinson & Elkins and Latham & Watkins have landed roles advising on two separate deals involving oil and gas giant BG Group.

On Wednesday, BG announced an agreement to supply the China National Offshore Oil Corp. with 3.6 million tons of liquefied natural gas each year for the next 20 years. The contract formalizes a preliminary agreement reached between the two parties almost a year ago. The LNG deal is the first that derives from a coal seam gas project in Australia owned by BG, according to the Oil & Gas Journal, an industry publication. Various news sources are estimating the total value of the contract and stake in BG’s Australian assets at roughly $70 billion.
