........An Unconstrained Business Case & Innovative Incremental Low Cost Oil Development Under Changing Laws, Energy Challenges & Pandemic Induced UncertaintyKigali, RwandaJan 30, 2023Feb 10, 2023$12,500

With this training, attendees will learn how to Scrutinize a Production Sharing Agreement. The PSA, the provisions of which are the focus of this training, occupy a special place in the history of oil contracts. They were developed in the 1960s and became widespread by the 1990s. While their popularity has waxed and waned over this period, they are still used in the oil and gas industry, especially among IOCs operating in low- and middle-income developing countries.

Asset and Production Managers are often tasked with maximising hydrocarbon production from existing assets with minimal and cost-effective modifications to existing facilities. As the operational costs of producing oil and gas increases due to staff shortages and increased production from marginal, unconventional and technologically challenging fields, there is greater need for cost-effective asset optimization.

Typically in PSA’s with Production Bonuses, why do Operators opt to pay Income tax instead of paying the Production Bonus set by the Government? Even though PSA is considered to be the most efficient Oil and Gas Contract by some scholars.

Implementation & Understanding of Nigerian Petroleum Fiscal Systems with .....Houston, TXMar 24, 2023Mar 28, 2023$6,250

The adoption of any petroleum arrangement – concessionary or contractual – is a financial issue that is centered on how costs are recovered, and profits divided, which is at the heart of taxation and economic rent theories. Hence Nigeria is expected to make the tax system attractive for the IOCs to encourage inward investment. The effectiveness of any petroleum arrangement depends largely on the attractiveness of its underlying tax regime which, in turn, depends on the effectiveness of its design and implementation. Hence the need for this course

This course will analyze in depth the key legal fiscal and commercial aspects of Production Sharing Contracts around the world with particular emphasis on the new PIA. These often-complex agreements have a number of fiscal formulas and accompanying legal clauses which means understanding the way they work is crucial to ensure a smooth contract implementation. By utilizing a powerful economic model, participants will be able to carry out in-depth computer analysis of 35 countries and jurisdictions around the world and enhance their understanding of the Production Sharing Contract.

International Energy Business with Emphasis on Profitability Under PIA, Fluctuating Cost & Global KinematicsKigali, RwandaMar 27, 2023Apr 07,2023$12,500

An economic rebound after the pandemic has triggered price spikes for multiple commodities. Conflicts around the world has led to even further increasing energy prices and security-of-supply concerns. However, the transition to a lower-carbon energy system continues and accelerates, and the coming decades will likely see a rapidly-changing energy landscape. This course provides insights into the longer-term trends that will continue to be essential in shaping future energy systems.

PIA represents an effort by Africa’s leading oil-producing country, Nigeria to respond to this changing environment. In 2019, the oil and gas sector accounted for about 5.8 percent of Nigeria’s real GDP and was responsible for 95 percent of Nigeria’s foreign exchange earnings and 80 percent of its budget revenues. In addition, because the law is far-reaching in its remit, it is complex and not easy to summarize. This course will focus on Profitability under the new law.

The PIA introduces a new tax regime, replacing the existing petroleum profits tax with a hydrocarbon tax and introducing a tax on the income of oil companies. Under this new fiscal regime, hydrocarbons—including crude oil, condensates, and natural gas liquids produced from associated gas—will be subject to taxation. Notably, crude oil from deep offshore is excluded from the tax.

One of the more controversial stipulations in the PIA is the provision stating that, in the event of supply shortfalls, only companies with active refining licenses or proven track record of international crude oil and petroleum products trading will be allowed to import such products. This is a controversial provision that has been interpreted as an attempt to confer monopoly powers on a few domestic refiners. Lets Discuss.

4D SEISMIC FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR ENAHNCED OIL RECOVERY IN MATURE FIELD Houston, TXJun 19, 2023Jun 23, 2023$6,250

Time-lapse seismic survey, also known as 4D seismic has great potential in monitoring and interpreting time-varying variations in reservoir fluid properties during hydrocarbon production. Production process can change reservoir parameters (such as fluid saturation, temperature and pressure), leading to changes in elastic properties (bulk modulus and density) corresponding changes in P- and S-wave velocities.

The time-lapse surveys interpret dynamic changes in reservoir parameters by detecting differences in seismic responses from different vintages, which are obtained by repeated seismic surveys over the same area. Extracting the full value from time-lapse seismic surveys (4D seismic) requires high levels of competence in advanced 3D imaging, time-lapse seismic processing (data conditioning to enhance repeatability of time-lapse datasets and reduce artificial differences that come from unavoidable differences in repeated-seismic survey environments), velocity modeling, and pre-SDM along with the application of methods unique to the 4D seismic processing and interpretation workflow.

This course provides 4D seismic studies of reservoirs that can be used to monitor reservoir fluid substitution and maximize production of reservoirs. Participants will gain in-depth understanding of how the seismic properties relate to reservoir properties as production takes place in the reservoir.

The course is designed to put the participants into a position where the seismic response can be related to important reservoir properties.
