Platts 6th Annual LNG Conference
Sutherland Partner Thomas H. Warren will speak at the Platts 6th Annual Liquefied Natural Gas Conference, May 21-22, 2007 at the Hilton Post Oak in Houston, Texas. Tom will present regarding "Evolving Netback Pricing in LNG Sale and Purchase Agreements (SPAs)."
Liberalization and globalization of gas markets and resulting differences in reference prices for varying locations has resulted in arbitrage opportunities and an evolution in SPA pricing terms - from early long-term contracts pegged to oil prices to gas-index based SPAs today. Tom will discuss forms of netback pricing in the USA and UK and how they allocate risks between the parties. He will also focus on how short term and long term SPAs: calculate netbacks; implement price floors, caps and other "re-openers" that limit netback formulas; and share the benefits and risks of diversions.
Sutherland is a sponsor of Platts 6th Annual Liquefied Natural Gas Conference, which brings together leading LNG, E&P, pipeline, LDC, generation, shipping and industrial companies to discuss the latest issues facing the LNG industry.
