"The first truly in-depth analysis by a legal practitioner into the content of upstream gas sales and gas transportation agreements." – International Energy Law and Taxation Review
This work provides a detailed, hands-on guide to the drafting, negotiation and interpretation of natural gas and LNG trading and transportation contracts. Based around a detailed dissection of gas and LNG agreements it highlights the legal and commercial issues involved at each stage and advises how they should be handled in practice.
Offering clause-by-clause commentary on the typical provisions within gas and LNG sales and transportation agreements, this book pinpoints key issues and suggests solutions to problems that can arise. It discusses the nature of gas and LNG and the contracting process and explains in detail the common components of contracts including quality and pressure, liabilities and limitations, force majeure and dispute resolution.
Written from the perspective of English law but in light of international experience and practice, the book provides discussion on the commercialisation of natural gas in light of recent concerns about climate change, cleaner energy sources and the security of energy supplies, contains a new chapter on price reviews and re-openers, and includes expertly drafted precedents on CD for rapid drafting.
