Today, Project Finance is uniquely challenging. Even the most carefully structured deals can face difficulties in attracting sufficient funding from international and local investors. More than ever, project developers, equipment suppliers, bankers and other credit agencies and investors must be properly equipped to analyse and explain the risks and prospects for a project's future performance.

Participants in this workshop will learn how to structure upstream and downstream energy projects including field development, pipelines, and other transportation and downstream infrastructure. They will also learn about LNG, petrochemical projects, and power deals.

By the end of the workshop you will have developed a framework for recognising and analysing qualitative and quantitative project risks, and learnt how to choose the optimal funding structure when financing green-field projects and facility upgrades in the energy sector. You will also understand how Excel models are used to assess project debt capacity, return on investment, and other metrics common to attractive deals.

Teaching Methodology

The course will be based on lectures, discussions and case study analytical exercises. [Laptops are an advantage].

Numerous examples of projects from the region and around the world are employed throughout the course to ensure understanding and demonstrate the application of concepts. Lectures include many recent examples of structured financing attractive to banks, bond investors, lessors and Islamic investors. Applications of energy related derivative instruments to enhance financing are also described.

Finally, careful attention is paid to describe the role of credit providers such as Export Credit Agencies and International Financial Institutions (IFIs) such as IFC, Asian and Islamic Development Bank, European Investment Bank, and bi-laterals. Many of these official agencies are today actively engaged in helping project developers and financiers to weather recent market upheavals and to provide long-term capital.
