International Petroleum Law Workshop
During this 4-day workshop, participants will learn the practical aspects of petroleum law: how the law works in practice; how to read and comment on legal documents, procedures and regulations and how to work with and assist members of their legal team. The principles of law and legal practice will be applied to the typical legal documents and issues that arise as a company first enters a country to negotiate a host country agreement through the drilling of wells and the negotiation of the transportation, lifting and sales agreements. The program will demystify the fundamentals of legal analysis, the language and meaning of legal documents and, in the process, enhance the participant’s working relationship with the legal team. The instructional format consists of lectures and case discussions by an experienced faculty, team participation in "Ganda" (a challenging business simulation game), as well as group examination and discussion of legal documents and contracts typically found along the oil and gas value chain.
