POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENTS MUSCAT – OCT 2019

POWER PURCHASE AGREEMENTS

Examine the various structures of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and how they fit
together to allocate and mitigate risk.

14 - 16 OCTOBER 2019, MUSCAT, OMAN

About The Course

This course focuses on examining the various structures of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and how they fit together to allocate and mitigate risk.

 

During the course you will examine a number of real life Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to understand each of their components and the reasons behind their structure.  The course will start with a simple PPA and the delegates will develop the schedules of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to account for the additional complexities found in real life projects to ensure that the PPA remains “bankable”. Also, the course we will also identify areas of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) that may be subject to negotiation and where the boundaries of those negotiations may lie.

 

After the course, delegates should be able to review PPAs with the ability to understand the reasons behind key aspects as well as being able to spot common omissions and avoid common mistakes.

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS FOR BOILER & HRSG FAILURES – OCT 2019

ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS FOR BOILER & HRSG FAILURES

31 OCTOBER 2019, JAKARTA, INDONESIA

About The Course

This training course is primarily intended for experienced O&M staff working in thermal power and process plants as well engineering and management staff at the corporate level.

 

The objective is to give attendees all the essentials for effective determination of the root cause of failures that can occur in the boiler or associated steam balance-of-plant. The principal failure modes are reviewed, with focus on those occurring in the boiler, critical piping and other key components such as pressure vessels and condensers.  Major emphasis is placed on analyzing how upstream events in the steam cycle process can lead to failures in downstream components.

 

Several actual failure case histories treated by our staff at plants around the world are presented, providing attendees with practical application of the presented concepts. The course is one day long.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand how to define the problem, collect the evidence and then identify the component failure mechanism, which is not the same as the failure root cause.
  • Acquire insight into the various root cause analysis methods, their respective merits and how several were applied in some actual case studies.

Who Should Attend

Although this training course is primarily aimed at O&M staff working in the plants, the content is also very relevant to corporate engineering and plant management staff that are concerned with assuring asset reliability and integrity.

LNG FUNDAMENTALS – OCT 2019

LNG FUNDAMENTALS

Master the essential commercial and technical forces driving the global LNG value chain.

22 - 24 OCTOBER 2019, SINGAPORE

About The Course

The course contrasts the technical and commercial differences between LNG and natural gas to point out benefits and constraints that arise from the LNG option. A description is given of the elements in the “gas chain” which apply to LNG and of drivers that would lead to optimisation of design and commercial operation.  The range and role of relevant parties to a successful LNG project are described. Regulatory authorities are also concerned with LNG safety, which is covered in detail.  Ways and means by which a new entrant to a proposed LNG project may ensure an investment that meets expectations.

 

Actual case histories will be used frequently to demonstrate learning points.  Case histories and exercises will deal with examples taken from international and local experience.

 

An introduction to terminology and practical “rules of thumb” should further enhance the participant’s ability to immediately contribute to a successful gas project – and to ask the right questions to test and improve the viability of a proposed project.

Learning Outcomes

On completion, participants in the course will be able to

  • Understand the special characteristics of LNG which both broaden and yet constrain the commercial and technical links in the “gas chain”
  • Generate options for market development proposals
  • Understand risks and their mitigation
  • Negotiate more effectively the terms of LNG sales agreements
  • Understand the perspectives of the investor, the operator, the customer and government towards the LNG project
  • Recognise political and diplomatic implications of international trade in LNG

Who Should Attend

LNG project development executives are drawn from both technical (E&P geoscience and engineering) and non-technical (commercial, finance and legal) backgrounds.

 

Participants who have recently joined an LNG market development team, perhaps with expertise in one area of gas development, will benefit from the course by obtaining a good grounding of all other areas.

Expert Course Faculties

Our first key expert is an energy professional with worldwide experience particularly in gas and LNG, most recently in China and Taiwan. As Managing Director (Gas & Power) for Shell in China, was acknowledged as a major influence in the change of China’s energy policy to import LNG and to utilize gas.

 

He has expertise in all phases of the gas and LNG business, and is acknowledged by industry experts, Governments and Government Expert Committees. Now a consultant and Board Member. Has consulted worldwide on all aspects of gas and LNG. Member of the Western Australia Gas Panel of Experts.

 

His influence on the development of energy policy in China and in Taiwan was recognised by the Energy Working Group of APEC and by the associated policy development body, APERC (Asia Pacific Energy Research Centre, based in Tokyo). For the past 4 years, has been invited to recommend energy policies to APERC and to critique energy policies developed by APERC.

 

He has extensive experience of working with Joint Venture partners, including as a senior member of the management of the actual JV team. As Technical and Planning Manager in the Venezuelan LNG Project was responsible for all technical and planning aspects. As LNG Manager in the Sakhalin LNG Project, led all LNG planning for the project. Led the consortium of Shell, Marubeni and Osaka Gas to bid for the Guangdong LNG Project.

 

He was the inaugural manager of the Onshore Treatment Plant of the North West Shelf LNG Project in Karratha. Set up the organisation and managed the start‐up and operation of the plant. He  has  always  maintained  a  keen  interest  and  capability  in  the technology of the gas and LNG business, and is respected by consultants and industry commentators for insight into the technology and its business applications

 

Our second key expert is a private consultant in the field of natural gas market development and is interested also in the integration of commercial and environmental opportunities offered by the use of natural gas. He was formerly with the Shell Group of Companies for 30 years.  His final post was General Manager, Natural Gas and Project Development Manager for Shell in China from 1997 to 2001.

 

His main responsibility was to develop a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import project, as well as sales and Marketing of natural gas, in China. He acted as the Shell delegate on the Joint Venture Project Committee of the Australian North West Shelf LNG project between 1993 and 1997. During that period he was also seconded part‐time to COAG Natural Gas Taskforce (to develop a national gas regulatory regime) to coordinate and report on the deliberations of the Upstream Working Group. Prior to that, he  was  involved in managing the application of onshore and offshore  technologies for Shell’s  own  exploration  and  production programme  ‐  the  successful  development of  gas projects for base and peak load duties in the UK Southern North Sea gas province, gas and oil venture assessments in Russia, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, and deep‐water gas and oil discoveries in The Philippines.

 

Before joining Shell in 1972, he worked for two years as a Field Geophysicist in Central Australia and Papua New Guinea for the Australian Government, Bureau of Mineral Resources (now ‘Geoscience Australia’) and for a further two years as a field party leader in Central Australia for a private exploration contracting company.
