Sutherland Partner Steven C. Sparling is speaking at the 5th Annual Law of LNG Conference, September 4-5, 2008, at the Hilton Post Oak Hotel in Houston, Texas. Steven's presentation will explain how to avoid current pitfalls in contracting for marine and tug services. Coordinating tug and other marine services at LNG terminals poses certain unique challenges, particularly at terminals with multiple capacity users. Steven will discuss various approaches to tackling these challenges, which include remote locations, requirements for dedicated services, allocation of liability and coordination among multiple terminal capacity users.
The Law of LNG Conference will address trading, hedging and arbitrage of LNG cargoes and natural gas and how to add value to LNG contracts; how recent changes in competition laws affect diversion of LNG cargoes and destination flexibility; structuring new and creative forms of credit support; managing risk and costs by properly addressing terminal liability, P&I insurance and marine services; how price re-openers are being used in the LNG industry; and downstream joint ventures with national oil companies.
