This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed understanding of the techniques employed for the financing of LNG projects. Alongside gaining an understanding of the technology and contractual structures which have been designed to mitigate the risks associated with financing offshore infrastructure assets, participants will also learn how oil & gas reserves are estimated.
Starting with an overview of the oil & gas industry, participants will learn how LNG has developed to form an integral component of the natural gas sector. Specific financing techniques applicable to each element of the LNG value chain will be considered. A qualitative and quantitative risk analysis framework will be used to illustrate the contractual structures which have been developed to support these complex multi-billion dollar financings. This will culminate in participants building their own LNG project financing structure.
With an overview of the financing of LNG-to-power projects, participants will gain an insight into the latest evolution of the LNG industry and the course concludes with an introduction to the increasing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Participants’ knowledge is consolidated through example case studies and interactive practical exercises.
On completion of the course, participants will be equipped with a clear understanding of:
- The role of LNG in the oil & gas industry;
- The LNG value chain;
- Key commercial contracts;
- Qualitative & quantitative risk analysis;
- Integrated and non-integrated financing structures;
- LNG-to-power financing issues;
- The importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations.
The course is led by Ian Cogswell, who shares the knowledge he has gained from over 20 years’ practical experience of oil & gas project financing.
