4 Clients benefit from the firm s specific industry sector experience Pillsbury stands apart for the depth of its experience in the development, acquisition and financing of the energy and infrastructure projects that will fuel the future: Alternative and renewable energy Oil and gas (including LNG) Gas-fired power Nuclear energy Mining and natural resources Infrastructure Transmission (electric and gas) With extensive industry sector experience, our Energy & Infrastructure Projects team can field a multidisciplinary service team that provides a broad set of planning and problem-solving skills, improving our ability to anticipate and avoid development and financing roadblocks. Our capabilities span: Industry-specific project document structuring and negotiation Cross-border ownership structuring and tax issues Premier oil, gas, energy, environmental and regulatory practices Project finance and complex risk allocation Domestic and international litigation and arbitration Relevant antitrust and competition experience FERC, environmental and other regulatory permitting and licensing Extensive capital markets, bank loan and syndication experience

5 Capabilities Power Generation and Transmission Pillsbury lawyers have led the legal work on hundreds of conventional power projects. We are ranked among the top firms in the world for power sector project finance and have led innovative developments in the electric transmission and power markets, including projects that have involved agencies like the World Bank and EBRD. Nuclear Energy Chambers ranks Pillsbury s nuclear practice among the best in the world. We represent clients and governments in nuclear energy transactional matters around the globe. Most recently, we teamed with ENEC in nearly every aspect of the Middle East s first peaceful nuclear power program. The approximately $20 billion contract to construct up to four 1,400MWe nuclear plants is the largest nuclear power contract ever announced and represents a huge leap forward for the UAE in developing its first nuclear facilities. Underpinning our transactional capabilities, we drive our clients efforts in government procurement, multiparty agreements, U.S. and international project finance transactions, joint ownership agreements for generation and transmission facilities, fuel procurement, export controls and nuclear liability/insurance issues. We have led the licensing of more power plants than any other firm, enabling our team to execute licensing matters with utmost efficiency. Current domestic U.S. work includes the structuring of the proposed ownership and financing of a majority of the new generation of nuclear plants. The nature of this project will require a partnership that endures for nearly 100 years it drove us to focus on a very careful assessment of what characteristics among the competing bidders would translate into the best overall fit in a partner for our program. Khaldoon Al Murbarak, Chairman of ENEC Renewable and Alternative Energy Across the entire range of renewable energy technologies, industries and markets, our energy and infrastructure projects team lawyers are experienced in all aspects of development, financing, regulation, tax, intellectual property and commercial law related to U.S. and international renewable and alternative energy projects. Our lawyers have been particularly active in advising clients regarding applications under the DOE Loan Guarantee Program, as well as the many tax and other incentives provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and can provide practical and knowledgeable advice as to their applicability to clients planned project development in the U.S. during the time frame. Oil and Gas (including LNG) The oil and gas industry has relied on Pillsbury counsel for decades and we are currently at the forefront of the evolving global LNG market. We have been recognized for structural innovations on commercial and financial transactions, and for navigating the legal, credit and political risks that impact our clients most difficult projects. Our experience covers the entire oil and gas supply chain upstream exploration and production, liquefaction, regasification, refineries, processing plants, transportation, pipelines, petrochemical projects and marketing. Mining Miners, investors, governments and trade associations rely on Pillsbury for counsel based on mining industry experience in project development, finance, environmental regulation and permitting, mergers and acquisitions, and litigation. Our client work has ranged from advising agent banks on asset privatization in Indonesia, to providing environmental due diligence under a number of countries regulatory regimes. Infrastructure We have structured innovative infrastructure project financings in the lease finance, asset securitization and capital market arenas around the world. A significant portion of our project experience is derived from work in developing countries or emerging markets in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. We have advised both public and private parties, as well as participants along the entire development and financing spectrum. In addition to electric and transmission lines, gas storage facilities, oil and gas pipelines and other energy-related infrastructure, our experience covers diverse sectors, including airports, ports and marine terminals, roads and bridges, arenas and stadiums, satellites, telecommunications, and water treatment and waste disposal facilities.
