22 Jul 2020


The ‘Upstream' or Exploration and Production (E&P) segment of the International Oil and Gas Industry, is in all probability, the riskiest in terms of capital intensity, long payback periods; technological dependence and a host of legal/environmental compliance requirements. It is commonplace for entities seeking hydrocarbon reserves to offset this risk exposure through collective entities such as Joint Ventures. This course has been specifically designed to provide the delegate with a holistic understanding not only of drilling contracts, but to understand them within the wider context of the larger governing framework of which they are a part in terms of hydrocarbon discovery and extraction. The course is an immersive experience and the focus is on open dialogue throughout and class exercises/problem solving and knowledge sharing.
