News Release: White And Case UK To Lead ESQ Workshop On Power Documentation And Financing

ESQ Legal will be delivering a two day power workshop. The workshop will involve an analysis of some of the key terms of standard Gas Supply Agreements, Power Purchase Agreements and Engineering, Procurement and Construction Contracts and identify key bankability issues that arise in connection with the financing and structuring of financing arrangements relating to the development of power projects. It will also provide guidance on the necessities for structuring power projects in order to make them bankable and attractive to international finance providers and involve an analysis of the contractual matrix and legal and regulatory framework in this context.

Presenters will also take participants through the current Nigerian regulatory framework for the power sector. It will include an analysis of the Nigerian standard form Gas Supply Agreement and Power Purchase Agreement and specific bankability issues relating to these documents. Participants will participate in an interactive case study which will provide them the opportunity to apply (with guidance from the presenters) the issues discussed to a worked example.

The presenters will draw from their experience on working on power projects in various jurisdictions (including in Europe, Africa and the Middle East).

This training is organised by ESQ Seminars with support from the Energy and Infrastructure Group
