Since 2013, SPE Thailand has 100% subsidized Members attendance fees at our Monthly Meetings. Owing to reduced sponsorship income (driven largely by lower E&P activities in recent years), we will be revising the monthly meeting fees for all categories commencing in September 2018. Note that the fees for Members will still be significantly subsidized, hence we would encourage all Non-Members to consider joining SPE.
Abstract: Drilling contracts pose numerous legal and commercial challenges for both upstream operators and rig owners alike. A variety of provisions in a rig agreement can result in substantial commercial leakage and impact the overall economics of the project. This discussion will highlight key lessons learned through case studies, as experienced by one of Chevron’s legal experts on drilling matters. Examples will be drawn largely from the Asia Pacific region.
