Event description


International Oil & Gas Commercial Contracts

by Christopher Lennon

27-29 August 2018 | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The International Oil and Gas Industry operates within an ever faster changing commercial environment. Factors such as the impacts of globalisation; the increasing rate of technological acceleration and the multi-cultural integration of the global workforce, coupled with exploration of challenging and remote operating environments; environmental concerns; shifting regulation; stakeholder agendas and enhanced public scrutiny – all contribute towards the criticality of ensuring that whatever activities an organisation undertakes from a commercial perspective – that there is absolute clarity in the contractual framework that will govern them.
This programme is unique as it is set against the backdrop abovementioned. The approach is dual – firstly to provide the delegate with an enhanced understanding of the structure and purpose of a commercial contract – what various components mean and what their functions and purposes are and how they relate to one another to collectively create a set of ‘rules’ that will govern the rights; duties and obligations of the parties to the contract. Secondly, the application of this knowledge is then taught to the delegates - how to negotiate a commercial contract – what to be aware of and look for. The nature of the programme is to encourage a high level of participative interactive dialogue and problem solving. The delegate will leave with an enhanced set of skills that will be immediately usable.
