Contract Risk Management for the Oil and Gas Industry

Jacob Fleming leading B2B conference organisers have planned a strategic conference on Contract Risk Management for the Oil and Gas Industry on the 16th – 17th September 2008 in Brussels.

Contracting in the oil and gas industry is constantly becoming more and more challenging with international contractors, operators and foreign legal systems. In addition, the question of risk allocation and the price and cost issues that are involved can not be overlooked. Also, there is a question of dispute prevention and resolution, both important issues to consider when writing the contract.

This conference has been specifically designed to address and discuss these challenges as well as offer possible solutions. Expert speakers featuring at the event will form a structured and informative event overall.

Business development and Commercial Manager from OMV International will be offering a case study on the challenges in dealing with petroleum agreements. He will share his expert experience covering political instability and risk assessment; how to safeguard being able to remain in business while at the same time defending company’s interest.

The Head of LNG and Complex Projects from Siemens Oil and Gas Division, will discuss a case study on creating efficient models to allocate and manage risk within contractors, owners and subcontractors relationships. This will also describe how risk management tools can help identify and tackle the hidden risks associated with construction and engineering contracts.

The General Counsel from Energy Charter will give advice and solutions when disputes cannot be resolved using arbitrage. A speaker from Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants will describe methods of resolving disputes through mediation.

As well as many other presentations through case studies, the event will also host interactive panel discussions from all the speakers attending over the two day event. The other attending companies include Shell International BV, Sterling Energy, Centrica, Bechtel Oil Gas and Chemicals, GE Oil and Gas, University of Stravanger and Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.

The event will offer the latest legal developments in the industry as well as assist in reducing contract costs and establish long-term, mutually profitable relationships.
