- LNG Practice Leader and Energy Sector Chair, partner Steven Miles, will co-chair the session on Linking the Value Chain for Financeability during which six papers will be presented by various industry leaders on, Thursday April 4, 10:00am - 12:30pm. The papers presented during Linking the Value Chain for Financeability explore the following issues from different perspectives, across regions and throughout the value chain, including downstream deregulation, access, shipping and upstream uncertainties:
- International Integrated gas projects such as LNG remain capital intensive and, in most cases, need to tap into the finance market
- Upstream projects face ongoing challenges including resource uncertainty, completion, technology and sovereign risk
- As downstream markets become more fragmented, deregulated and potentially less credit worthy, how (and who) will bring the value chain together?
- Partner Michael Arruda from our Beijing office will present his paper “Third Party Access in China’s LNG Market” during the Linking the Value Chain for Financeability session -Thursday, April 4, 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
