The LNG Value Chain: Key Legal and Regulatory Issues

The LNG Value Chain: Key Legal and Regulatory Issues

This course guides attendees through key legal and regulatory issues facing the LNG market in Asia Pacific today, from contracting strategies to policy initiatives and pricing pressures, including price reviews and renegotiations. The complete LNG value chain is also explored, with the alignment of upstream, midstream and downstream components and practical examples of integrated LNG import (regasification) and LNG to Power projects.

The course leader will provide examples of a number of LNG projects and case studies in the Asia Pacific region in order to help delegates understand the practical implications of different project structures and different business models, as well as risk allocation and risk mitigation strategies under long term and short term LNG contract.

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a proactive discussion with the course leader during the workshop and share thoughts and initiatives as we work through the agenda.
