Oil & Gas

The oil & gas industry continues to face many technical challenges including locating, tapping and recovering oil from unconventional reserves, upgrading heavy oil recovered from unconventional reserves, reducing carbon emissions, recycling waste water and increased production efficiencies. Many reserves are located in remote and hostile environments, which presents special challenges in accessing and servicing the reserves. These challenges have resulted in companies that are at the forefront of innovation and require specialized expertise to protect their advancements in this competitive and evolving field.

Bereskin & Parr’s Oil & Gas industry group was formed by bringing together professionals from the firm’s patent practice group and litigation group who have specific experience in obtaining and enforcing patents in the oil and gas field and are uniquely suited to strategically position your company’s IP in a complex competitive environment. Together, the members of the Oil & Gas group can provide in-depth knowledge of all aspects of IP that relate to aspects of the oil and gas industry, including exploration, drilling, fracking, recovery, upgrading and refining technologies, water purification and recycling technologies, emission control, gas scrubbing and syngas production.
