Proven strategies to commercialise and operate within contested boundaries of oil and gas reserves

24-25 November 2011 | Manila, Philippines

Are boundary disputes costing you milions and cripling your revenue streams, taking years to resolve and delaying commercialisation of important oil & gas reserves?

Meet governments, high-level negotiators and ConocoPhillips, BHP Billiton, Petronas, Pertamina, CNOOC, PNOC, PetroBangla, PTTEP, Mitsui Exploration, Shell, ExxonMobil, BumiArmada, National Iranian Oil Company and more!

Following the ASEAN-China landmark deal on the Guidelines on the Implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, cooperation looms.

In a levelling playing field and increasing government stakes in oil and gas production, hardball tactics are increasingly at play. As the search for new E&P ventures continues, boundary disputes between E&P concession blocks and across borders are becoming more common.

Operation in contested regions involves high risk and a delicate balance of legal, technical and commercial/financial expertise to discuss this kind of questions:

• How do you operate in different fiscal and regulatory regimes?

• How do you achieve delimitation to start new activities in disputed regions?

• What do you do when mediation fails – all the way to the ICJ, is this even effective?

“The quicker and more effective the agreement, the sooner the companies and countries can earn from it.”

“It could take over 50 years to resolve these disputes - issues which involve, among many other things, modern states adopting the old colonial boundaries (such as Cameroon/Nigeria), and emerging states (Timor-Leste) or terrain which is not accurately delimited (Gulf of Thailand, South China Sea).”

From assessing intricacies of border disputes, through to maritime delimitation technicalities, to successful resolution practices, International Boundary Disputes and Unitisation in E&P is the leading forum for in-depth analysis of this highly-charged business critical issue.

Uniting real-life field experience from across the Asia Pacific region, with the most successful global practices in border disputes, the event will showcase the latest strategies and case studies to allow operators to cost-effectively predict, manage and operate within contested regions.

“Following the ASEAN-China landmark deal on 20 Jul about the Guidelines on the Implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea, what are the implications for your oil and gas operations and exploration?”
