Session 1: Overview of an International Energy Project Lifecycle - An overview of a typical international energy project lifecycle from development through decommissioning.

Session 2: Petroleum Engineering: Conventional Hydrocarbons How do we physically explore for, develop and produce hydrocarbons? As lawyers, we must have an understanding of the fundamentals of petroleum activities to accurately draft agreements and effectively provide counsel to energy industry clients. An introduction to different types of offshore and onshore drilling and production systems including FPSOs (floating, production, storage and off-loading vessels) and TLPs (tension-leg platforms). Typical liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facilities (liquefaction, regasification and pipelines) are discussed, with coverage of "high-level" drilling and production facilities and operation cost estimates.

Session 3: Unconventional Hydrocarbon Resources - An overview of the geology and geophysics of unconventional hydrocarbon resources including shale. An introduction to the petroleum engineering techniques required to develop and produce these resources.

Session 4: Host Country Instruments (HCIs) - A look at the legal regimes used globally for buying, selling, exploring, developing and producing hydrocarbons, including Concession or Royalty/Tax, Production Sharing, Risk Service Agreements and so-called "hybrids;" with a discussion of basic natural resource ownership/title concepts and provisions of various HCIs, including key fiscal and non-fiscal terms.

Session 5: International Energy Project Economics This session is designed to provide a lawyer the basics of energy project economics "101" so that they can better work with their energy industry clients to develop legal options in various deal scenarios that are also "economic." Hear an examination of how we develop project economic models to calculate investor rates of return and other key economic indicators by using facility and operation cost estimates, revenue estimates and Host Country Instrument provisions. The role of "risk analysis" in developing project models and the concept of leverage and how it can impact project economics also is considered.

Session 6: Co-Venture Formation and Agreements - Leverage and risk allocation are two factors that frequently lead most international energy projects to be undertaken by more than one co-venture party. This session covers the most common arrangements by which parties acquire interests in energy projects including farmins, farmouts, participation agreements and swaps, with coverage of the fundamental provisions of typical co-venture Joint/Unit Operating Agreements (JOAs) using the AIPN model form as a basis.

Session 7: Co-Venture Economics: The Power of Leverage - A discussion of the economic inflection points that occur over the life of an upstream project. Participants work through examples of typical commercial arrangements for farmins and co-venture risk-sharing.

Session 8: Co-Venture Operations Getting into a co-venture can seem easy compared to operating a successful co-venture. This session looks at operational provisions within the industry joint operating agreement framework, including management decision-making and contracting.

Session 9: The Globalization of Anti-Corruption - Discussion of risk-based global programs including integrating compliance into the business, analysis of the program through the lens of core program building blocks, using technology to mitigate risk and screen third parties, and keeping up with global legal developments.

Session 10: Anti-Corruption Drafting - 

Session 11: Ethics and Professionalism in a Global Environment Ethics and professionalism are being influenced by many factors in today’s global environment. Consider some of these factors, along with areas of commonality amongst the legal ethics rules from a sampling of jurisdictions.
