"Vienna – July 2015 – Wolf Theiss is advising listed Italian energy company ERG and Russian oil major Lukoil on the complex separation of LUKERG Renew, an Austrian-based 50-50 joint venture between ERG Renew and LUKOIL created in 2011 with a view to investing in the wind sector throughout the CEE region. The companies have mutually agreed to dissolve the joint venture, with consequent sharing of the assets.
