Project Financing in Oil & Gas

In an increasingly volatile market with oil prices impacting liquidity across the world, industry experts are anticipating significant renovation of the project financing market. Now more than ever before it is of paramount importance that project owners and sponsors come together to share thoughts and ideas of how we can implement robust and lucrative financing structures and strategies.

SMi is delighted to announce the return of their 3rd annual Project Financing in Oil and Gas conference. This meeting will offer all parties involved in financing oil and gas projects the perfect platform to dissect key challenges and latest developments in the industry. This 2-day conference will provide in-depth analysis surrounding effective financing strategies oil and gas projects spanning from upstream to downstream. Not only will it provide attendees with an outlook of projects in the pipeline but it will also explore the financial security of existing projects and how this can be maximised. Special focus will be on due diligence, gas infrastructure financing, and the expanding and evolving LNG and FLNG markets.
