Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): William Hughes
|International petroleum transactions occur within a complex legal environment that limits what petroleum companies, host governments and service companies can do, and interprets and enforces many of their promises. Petroleum professionals often lack the broad understanding of what makes up this legal environment and how it can have an impact on their work. This course is designed to give participants a basic understanding of the legal fundamentals that make their international transactions work, including the principles that apply to interpreting and enforcing their agreements, the procedures for resolving their disputes, addressing interpretational issues posed by common contract provisions, and avoiding liability under environmental and bribery laws. The course will teach participants to confidently identify potential legal problems, address them before they become serious, and facilitate the smooth interaction between oil and gas professionals, host government representatives, and their lawyers.|
Petroleum managers who deal with international oil and gas legal matters in the course of their business, and legal professionals with little formal, specialized training in oil and gas law, but expect to deal with international oil and gas law matters.
