........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.

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.

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.

From Indonesia to Nigeria, governments are rethinking local content. Now, more than ever, countries and companies are trying to identify effective measures to drive local sustainable development when sourcing or making new investments. This challenge is particularly hard when seeking to find the right balance between
promoting the use of local enterprises and workforces without compromising other critical factors such as cost competitiveness, quality, safety, and schedule. Sourcing locally and using new private sector investments to catalyze local economic growth— local and national content—is growing in importance
across all sectors of the global economy.

Since mid-2015, the topic of local content has moved center stage, and with it the need for adaptive professionals to implement rapidly evolving local content compliance regimes and deliver tangible local benefits as a balance to globalization. Today, in upending the supply chain world order, the COVID-19 pandemic is redefining how we source goods and labor. Companies and governments should not wait for this current pandemic to run its course before launching initiatives to reimagine their use of local content—and they certainly shouldn’t wait for the next global shock to force their hand. This course takes practitioners from both the private and public sectors through the theory, definition, and implementation of appropriate and well-balanced local and national content policies, at the government, corporate, or project level. It examines various local content laws, regulations, and policies around the world and assesses their effectiveness. It also trains participants on alternative private sector approaches, at the corporate or project level, to developing successful local and national content development policies and plans.

Additionally, participants learn the latest practices in determining how to measure local supply chain capacity as well as skill levels and qualifications in the local workforce to inform their local engagement strategies. They will also learn how to translate the results of such forecasts and scenario analyses into local content plans that reflect how local economic impact can be achieved most effectively.
