Annual UK Oil and Gas Law Seminar

Dundee, 6th - 10th November 2017

In an era of low oil prices and falling production, the challenges for new projects and existing projects are immense. Low prices put pressure on the contractual allocation of risk. This seminar is an intensive look at the regulatory and contractual mechanisms of the UK oil and gas sector.

This 5-day seminar will follow the barrel from exploration, through appraisal, to production and eventual decommisionning. The UK model of increasing cooperation between operators provides a new opportunity to maintain production levels.

It looks at the contract matrix surrounding the project as operators and owners deal with general and specialist contractors. It follows revenues and taxes through to the end of the project and the tax implications of decommissioning.

The Commercialisation of Oil and Gas Discoveries

Dundee, 14th and 15th November 2017

In this current climate, most oil and gas exploration companies are cutting their budgets. With reduced capacity to fund projects, it is even more important for oil industry participants to understand the critical steps used to assess project viability.

When oil prices fell from $100 in September 2014 to a low of €26 in January 2016, exploration and development budgets were dramatically reduced. Almost 18 months later, management of oil production by some producers appears to have introduced pricing stability with oil prices remaining about $50/bbl so far in 2017.

Oil and gas companies now face the dilemma, as to whether they should rescale upwards their exploration and development activities and position themselves for production growth at a time when service companies are bidding aggressively into development projects.
