The Commercialisation of Oil and Gas Discoveries

10 – 11 November 2015, Dundee, UK

Average oil and gas prices for 2015 are projected to be 40%-50% lower than prices during the previous 4 years.  As a result most oil and gas exploration companies are cutting their budgets.  With reduced capacity to fund projects, it is even more important for oil industry participants to understand the critical steps used to assess project viability.

The course is suitable for lawyers, project financiers, financial analysts, project development engineers and government officials/regulators, who have a role in the potential development of oil and gas discoveries.
