Firm News

A team from Quinn Emanuel's Sydney office, led by Managing Partner: Sydney, Michelle Fox, Partner Beau Deleuil and Of Counsel Angelina Gomez, has won a significant victory for their client, Santos Energy. The court granted permission to proceed with the construction of an undersea pipeline, which is crucial to the $5.8 billion Barossa gas project that Santos Energy is undertaking.

The judge shared that there was "significant division" among Tiwi Islanders over traditional accounts of Ampiji and Jirakupai and only a "negligible chance that there may be objects of archaeological value in the area of the pipeline route." The pipeline will connect the Barossa gas field to a processing plant in the northern Australian city of Darwin. With this decision, a significant hurdle that was blocking the long-stalled project has been cleared, and Santos Energy's fortunes have been boosted, with shares trading up as much as 3.7% following the decision.

Congratulations to this stellar QE Sydney team:

Michelle Fox, Beau Deleuil, Angelina Gomez, Jodi Donovan, Pat Meehan Amy Kosa, Lauren Danckwerts, Joel Breckler, Olliver Maassen, Katharine Read, Leopold Bailey, Thomas Lambeth, Jose Brummert, Maja Cvjetanovic, Andrew Johnson
