June 29, 2012
The American Lawyer named energy partner Chrysten Perry and securities senior partner Kevin Johnson their Dealmakers of the Week for leading the Norton Rose Canada team in advising PETRONAS in its agreement to acquire Progress Energy Resources Corp. for approximately C$$5.5 billion.
The Norton Rose Canada team for PETRONAS also included securities partner Michael Bennett, tax partners Darren Hueppelsheuser and Dion Legge, and regulatory senior partner John Carleton.
The acquisition of Calgary-based Progress is consistent with the strategy of PETRONAS (the Malaysian national oil and gas company) in strengthening its position as one of the global leaders in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Progress is focused on the exploration, development and production of large, unconventional natural gas resources in northeast British Columbia and northwest Alberta.
