Conference Documentation: Project Financing in Oil & Gas

Conference Documentation: Project Financing in Oil & Gas

SMi's Project Financing in Oil and Gas Conference is aimed to give a detailed update on the Project Financing Markets. Crucially, different scenarios regarding the oil and gas commodity prices and the resulting effect on Project Financing will be discussed, as well as understanding the complexities around financing your own oil or gas project. We will hear from experts on how project financing can be used in a variety of scenarios, including joint ventures. Other structured financing techniques will be discussed, allowing the audience to understand when Project Financing really is the best option. The risks and how to mitigate them will be discussed in regard to up, mid and down stream as well as considering the difficulties that political instability creates.

Aimed at both oil and gas majors, as well as SMEs, we aim to create a great networking atmosphere which is beneficial to all parties, including bankers, lawyers, consultants and developers.

We need your opinion! What is the impact of oil prices on new project finance loans?
