MODERN PETROLEUM REVENUE MANAGEMENT
April 24-28, 2017

Governments in petroleum economies seek to maximize revenue receipts and limit the consequences of uncertainty and instability in actual cash flows resulting from product price or volume disparity from forecast. Global experience indicates that there are a variety of alternatives to share petroleum revenues between the host government and investors. In general, there is a trade-off between revenue maximization and exposure to risk. Systems which seek to balance these between a government and investor have historically led to reservoir maximization and efficiency.

Governments have adopted the use of revenue funds to stabilize highly volatile petroleum rents; to save for future generations; or to guard against budget shortfalls. More recently, governments have recognized the need to better share petroleum wealth with local communities, especially those disrupted by petroleum operations. This advanced seminar examines the structure and the benefits and risks associated with current practices to manage and distribute petroleum revenues. Participants will receive a detailed review of modern practices and programs, and case studies of recent investment and design of petroleum revenue management programs, as well as local content development programs. Material is delivered through a variety of methods including: reference reading, in-class lecture, industry panels, and interactive group simulations and workshops.

   
Key Topics:  
     
  • Understanding the "resource curse" and how to avoid it)
  • Design of host country's petroleum revenue management policy
  • Upstream fiscal system options and government take
  • Revenue monitoring, enforcement and collection systems
  • Use of heritage funds (with case study on Timor Leste)
  • Revenue transparency (vs contract disclosure)
  • Fiscal relationships between national and subnational governments
  • Revenue sharing with treasury, state and local institutions (the case for earnings retention within SOEs)
  • Local content program best practices (with case study on Tanzania)
  • Use of petroleum revenues for renewables sector and climate change measures
  • Other energy sector benefits to local communities
 

 

NATURAL GAS DEVELOPMENT

Natural gas is among the fastest growing contributors to global energy demand, providing affordable and cleaner alternatives to conventional fossil fuels. However, in many countries, natural gas is a very underdeveloped resource due to poor gas development and use policies; underdeveloped gas infrastructure and markets; and unsupportive legal and commercial frameworks.

This advanced seminar examines issues using policy, legal and commercial lenses to provide a strategic level understanding of the natural gas value chain. Participants will receive a detailed review of the legal and commercial issues that must be resolved for successful sector development. Material is delivered through a variety of methods including: reference reading, in-class lectures, industry panels and interactive group simulations and workshops.

   
Key Topics:    
     
  • Natural gas role (and benefits) in meeting global primary energy needs
  • Principle-based approach to natural gas policy formation
