Course Outline: The activities in the upstream sector are funded by international oil companies but the work is carried out primarily by oil field contractors. Selecting the right contractors and designing and managing appropriate contractual relationships is one of the most important functions in an oil company. From both the operator and the contractor perspective the contracts must be realistic and clearly spell out roles and expected rewards and performance. Yet expectations are changing dramatically as petroleum activities must take into account the requirements of host governments, local communities and international standards in addition to company shareholder demands. Once the host government contract and the joint operating agreement are signed, how contractors would manage the compliance with obligations through service and procurement contracts? This course will provide an overview of the oil company/contractor relationships, typical contracts terms, financial implications, project finance, best practices, as well as the new trends development by integrated service contracts, to help drive sustainable results that benefit all stakeholders.
