Fundamentals of Oil and Gas Property Acquisition and Finance
|Event Date/Time: Oct 13, 2009||End Date/Time: Oct 16, 2009|
This 4-day course is designed for industry professionals requiring an understanding of unique aspects of oil and gas property transactions. The course will focus on the skills required in evaluation (both buy-side and sell-side), financing, acquisition, and exploitation planning for an oil and gas entity. The course will include a real-world acquisition case which will examine undeveloped reserves, pipeline facilities, and competitive bidding. Divided into teams, participants will analyze the transaction, competitively bid to acquire the property, arrange financing, and plan to exploit the property post closing. The case considers both an asset and corporate shares acquisition with pre and after-tax cash flow analysis. Spreadsheet modeling and risk simulation of the transaction are included. Participants will gain an appreciation for those unique and specialized aspects of energy transactions as well as the nuances for forecasting product price, cost, and capital availability in successful business development. Participants are expected to bring a laptop, loaded with Microsoft Excel, to the course.
A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
