Professionals of the oil and gas industries are more than ever required to know and understand the regulations and practices governing their industry. This requirement extends not just to lawyers, but also geologists seeking out new mining sites, engineers planning the drills, and those responsible for drawing up mining contracts, who all need to know the legal technicalities affecting their industry. However, knowledge of the black letter law is no longer enough; a practical understanding of operations is also a necessity.
During this Euromoney training, delegates will acquire the fundamentals of international oil and gas agreements, along with negotiation techniques and strategies that work in international and multicultural settings. Delegates will also learn how to effectively negotiate in concert with counsel and how to get the terms negotiated incorporated into an enforceable international oil and gas agreement.
The hands-on practical exercises will give you an understanding of the art of negotiations. Delegates will understand the components of “the deal”, timing, strategies for gaining the upper hand in negotiations, games opponents play, good vs. bad negotiations and the pitfalls of positional bargaining.
After attending this course, delegates will be better equipped to negotiate profitably with international companies and governments in order to produce enforceable agreements that contain terms and conditions most productive for their company.
