Norton Rose oil and gas partner Alex Cull is relocating from Singapore to Perth.
"Australia is one of only a handful of global hot spots being targeted for inward investment, especially from hungry North Asia clients," Cull said.
"In addition to the conventional offshore projects, and booming coal seam gas, we are seeing shale and underground coal gasification projects emerge. Australia is also a pioneer in projects involving floating liquefied natural gas. It's an exciting time for the industry."
Representing governments, developers, operators, contractors and lenders across the complete oil and gas supply chain, Cull has particular expertise in upstream operations, asset and company acquisition and sales, trading and commercialising gas.
