Oil & Gas Project Finance Training Course

Develop your knowledge of project financing along the hydrocarbon chain

2 - 4 December 2015

Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer, London

Taught by a respected project finance and international oil and gas expert, the training commences with an industry overview and teaching/group work on qualitative and quantitative risk analysis. This is designed to
ensure that all participants have a good working understanding of the:

  • Basic structure of the international petroleum industry
  • Qualitative risk “template” applied by lenders – what risks are “bankable”
  • Different risk/reward objectives of sponsors and lenders
  • Ratios and other tools used to determine loan values and balance equity and debt

You will then progress to a study of the project financing challenges in the separate branches of the industry, in particular:

  • Upstream field development – single assets and borrowing bases
  • Refineries – both greenfield and upgrades
  • Oil and gas transportation pipelines and gas gathering systems
  • Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) liquefaction and regasification
    petrochemical plants
  • Gas-to-liquids

The emphasis is on applying all that you learn.

Recognise how structures have changed over time and know where and why structures have not worked.

Two major case studies will be used – one in the upstream sector and one in the downstream – to reinforce the principles taught on the course and to allow projects to be examined with greater granularity.
