Summary

A five day certificated course on how to draft gas supply agreements.

This course is suitable for anyone wishing to learn about the details of drafting GSAs and PPAs. The course has two stages (the first week can be taken as a standalone course):

  • Week One: laying the foundation, the details of GSAs and PPAs
  • Week Two: the practice, learning and practicing negotiation skills

The first week can be taken as a standalone course and for those who wish to go more deeply into practical applications, a follow on second week course is also available, which will provide practical contract design, negotiation skills, interactive exercises and a contract negotiation business game.

This interactive course will analyse how best to negotiate successful GSAs and PPAs from a commercial perspective, and assesses best practice in financing projects and risk mitigation.  This course is designed as a follow on course for those who have previously completed our course “Drafting Drafting Gas Supply Agreements and Power Purchase Agreements” and is suitable for anyone wishing to gain a fuller and practical understanding of drafting and negotiating GSAs and PPAs.

Course objectives

After completing this course, delegates will have a fuller and more practical understanding of constructing and negotiating GSAs and PPAs.
