PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS FINANCIAL AND RISK ANALYSIS
November 18-22, 2019

Financial assessments of proposed projects have become necessary for countries considering PPPs for infrastructure projects. These assessments are essential to attracting private investors. This is particularly important for countries with substantial needs in infrastructure rehabilitation and expansion. The workshop primarily focuses on two financial models: graphical and numerical, which have proven quite successful for preliminary financial evaluations when detailed data and financial arrangements are not yet fully defined.

This seminar provides a review of essential concepts and available toolkits, case studies, hands-on conceptual and numerical exercises, attendees of the ILI course on Financial and Risk Analysis of projects will deepen their understanding on the key principles behind PPPs (also known as P3s), alternative delivery methods, financial and risk assessments, and the role they can play in improving service quality, addressing O&M challenges, and delivering essential infrastructure (e.g. transport, energy, water, wastewater, building) projects.

* Workshop participants are encouraged to obtain, prior to the workshop, basic data available on an existing or proposed PPP project of their interest. If this is not feasible, pro forma data will be provided at the seminar.

   

Key Topics:

  • Financial assessments of PPP projects
  • Overview of PPP options and strategies
  • Policy and Planning
  • Implementation and Monitoring

The International Law Institute (ILI) is pleased to offer two respective seminars on judicial court and case management, and case administration that will take place at their headquarters in Washington, DC from July 29th – August 9, 2019. From the perspective of tribunals to traditional courtroom settings, these seminars will explore the fundamental components of court, docket, and civil dispute management and administration through exposure to US and international models of processes and standards.

There are many levels to every court and tribunal system. The people, practice, institution, organization, and the system itself are all integral. At every level, practitioners should strive for alignment with applicable legal standards, and also with the principles of natural justice and good practice.

Changing times and increasing complexity in their cases and docket confront practitioners daily, and these seminars are designed to assist practitioners in meeting these challenges through lectures on the substantive, procedural, and ethical aspects of court and case management and administration, and with site visits to appropriate institutions.

Both seminars – 2019 Judicial, Court, and Case Management for Judges and 2019 Court and Case Administration for Court Administrators – are to be held concurrently and will act as valuable complements to one another.

Overview

Drafting contracts in the natural gas sector carries a complexity above and beyond what is normally found in conventional oil-based projects. The regional nature of the business and the need for infrastructure to get natural gas to market requires careful consideration of commercialization issues from the initial investment in the upstream and continuing until volumes are physically delivered to end users in the power industry.

This section of the seminar will examine contracts and legal structures necessary for each stage gate of natural gas development. Upstream contracts, host government instruments, and investment laws will be discussed, highlighting key natural gas provisions and drafting issues. A discussion of Midstream natural gas agreements will follow, covering processing, fractionation, transportation, and storage. A special session on LNG and FLNG will be included in the Midstream section and will include discussion of Downstream issues such as tolling and regas capacity. Finally, natural gas marketing will be reviewed, covering essential contracts for both short- and long-term sales situations. Material is delivered through a variety of methods including reference reading, in-class lectures, case studies, industry panels and, interactive group simulations and workshops.
