Overview

Midstream companies do business through contracts, yet so often the details are only understood by the core team who creates them.  Whether the contract is for the purchase and sale or processing of oil and gas, for the engineering, procurement, and construction of pipelines and other facilities, or, for master purchase or service agreements, there are many critical areas attorneys and commercial managers must focus upon while negotiating and creating a clear, workable and effective contract for the company.  The company’s rights, therefore, are largely determined by the fundamental skills and knowledge of its counsel and contract managers.

At EUCI’s Midstream Oil & Gas Contracts course, key takeaways include:

      • General contract terms
      • FERC jurisdictional issues
      • Construction contracts
      • Other project development agreements
      • Gathering agreements
      • Pipeline ROW
      • Environment, health and safety issues

Participants will identify key considerations associated with putting a new contract in place, the questions their team will want to have answered, and how to negotiate more effective contracts with suppliers, customers, partners, and other counter-parties.  In addition, this course will address the fundamentals and strategies for effective negotiation.  Each attendee will receive sample copies of the types of agreements and contracts discussed during the course.
