9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The second Asia Congress on successfully negotiating and renegotiating Long Term Gas Supply Contracts focuses on negotiation and renegotiation of long term oil indexed gas contracts. The LNG market undergoes a global transformation, with supply expanding rapidly. The linkage to oil in long term LNG contracts in Asia has meant that gas prices are generally much higher than those in other parts of the world, leading to serious doubts about the sustainability of this pricing model. As spot markets and alternative sources of supply develop further in the region, gas purchasers in Asia are now looking to renegotiate more favorable terms for their long-term contracts with their suppliers. As such, there is a need for expertise in contract formation as well as effective negotiation strategies. The event provides expert guidance on these issues.
Key Themes Include:
- Evaluating Current Contract Trends in Asia: How Sustainable is the Momentum Towards Shorter Term Agreements?
