Course Overview

The oil and gas industry does business through contracts - yet so often the details are only understood by the core legal team who create them. Whether the subject under discussion is the purchase of a new oil exploration license or the provision of specialist oil services, the obligations each party is committing to, and the rewards they will gain are determined by the contract.

What are the most important areas a commercial manager in an oil and gas company should be looking at when he is putting a new contract in place? What should he be asking his legal team to include? How can he negotiate 'better' contracts with suppliers and business partners? How can he protect his business, if disputes develop? These are just a few of the questions this programme will address, focusing on contracts in use in the oil and gas industry.

Using actual examples from the petroleum resources sector, the programme will develop and enhance the skills and capabilities of delegates on the how to do procurement well and how to create, negotiate and manage the contract that follows a procurement project. It will give delegates an overview of contract law and practice, and will sharpen their abilities to negotiate effectively.
