Course description

International Petroleum Contracts - IPC

You will learn the philosophy, evolution, and fundamentals of international petroleum contracts and have an opportunity to see how each of these actually works. You will take part in life-like negotiating sessions mastering many negotiating techniques, where a mistake is a learning experience not a disaster. As you prepare for each session, you use a computerized economic model to assess the value of contract terms. This enables improved planning of negotiating strategies to achieve the desired goals by parties on both sides of the negotiating table. The classes include participants from both national oil companies and foreign contractors, which adds further realism to the exercises. Host governments and outside contractors are on opposite sides of the negotiating table, but they are not adversaries. A win-win business arrangement should be the objective of both parties, as a signed contract makes them partners. A viable contract cannot be negotiated without an effective understanding of the underlying economics. Negotiating strategies will determine contractual terms ultimately defining the economic benefits to be realized.

Concessions and production sharing agreements are two of the contract types to be evaluated. Each participant receives a disk copy of the spreadsheets used in the negotiation workshop and a manual, which explains the fundamental principles of E&P contracts, presents examples of economic analysis, and includes a model contract.

"Liked the mock negotiations the most." - Reservoir Engineering Advisor, United States
