“The Edge ClubCard is more than just a loyalty card. It may earn your company rewards when you sign up for our events. Rewards such as discounts, airfare, hotel accommodation, et cetera. It is specifically designed not just to increase customer retention but also our way to give back to those companies who have been our loyal attendees.”

Event Announcement: Drafting, Negotiating, Re-Negotiating Mining Agreements


Trends and perspectives on the development of mineral resources in many African nations have varied substantially over the last fifty years.  In some cases this had led to a review, and potentially a re-negotiation of, mining agreements that were originally intended to survive for extended durations.  Understanding the divergence of objectives and the relative negotiating leverage of each party, whether discussing a new contract or re-negotiating an existing contract, can help to avoid common pitfalls and frustrating delays.

The workshop will cover traditional dispute resolution and termination provisions, but will focus on practical realities and identify contractual mechanisms to avoid situations where the only remedy is to arbitrate or terminate. 

The workshop will cover basic concepts of contract law with a view towards identifying and managing risk, maximizing profits, adapting to changing circumstances and resolving disagreements.

Delegates will consider these issues in the context of typical contracts used in the mining industry and particularly contracts that are intended to endure over long periods, such as joint venture agreements, shareholder agreements and long-term product sale agreements.

Delegates will follow the contract cycle from negotiation through drafting and execution of the contract, implementation of the agreement, default, disputes and termination or expiration of the contract.

Event Announcement: Principles of & Procedures for Negotiating, Drafting and Managing Oil & Gas Contracts


Due to the new trends in the contemporary Oil & Gas industry, particularly in the complicated upstream & offshore projects and as a result of the dynamic changes experienced nowadays in the relationship between different players in the industry such as International Oil Companies / National Oil Companies /Service Oil Companies, varieties of cooperate formula such as Joint Venture, Public Private Partnership, Purchase Agreement, Joint Operating Agreement, Alliances, and Consortium as well as different models of contracts such as EC, EP, EPC, BOT, GC, MC, PSC, TSA, PSAC, concession and service contracts have been introduced and/or optimized in the nowadays Oil & Gas industry.

To manage the new dynamic Oil & Gas industry, it is not sufficient just to manage the Oil & Gas project but a duty of care and great considerations should also be granted to the concerned Oil & Gas contract(s). That’s why nowadays the Oil & Gas contract management becomes as prominently important as the project management. However, this unruly horse of Oil & Gas contract cannot be administered or controlled on a partial basis or timely manner without having a proper vision and mission for its lifecycle and chain of activities commencing from feasibility study to negotiation, conclusion, execution and close out of the Oil & Gas Contracts. Without being engaged in the strategic and tactical issues of industry Oil & Gas contracts, and without implementing a long term A-Z comprehensive Oil & Gas contract management plan, every efforts of the conventional approach of project management will be regretfully destined to the total failure.

The aim of this course is to achieve the above mentioned purposes through comprehensive TEFCEL* Strategic Management. The course leader Dr Ebrahimi shall assure that inputs and outputs of the professionalism resulted from the outside Oil & Gas world; driven from the actual experiences and practices; based upon the true knowledge and fact finding cases; and illustrated from varieties of cases encountered in the Oil & Gas industry, will be relayed to the Workshop’s participants, making sure everyone will be ultimately satisfied acquiring handful of new thoughts and knowledge that could change his/her own Oil & Gas industry.

* TEFCEL stands for Technical, Economic, Financial, Commercial, Contractual, Environmental and Legal. The concept of TEFCEL has been introduced and developed by Dr Ebrahimi since 2005 and is considered to be his Doctrine ever since.

This program will be led by Dr. S N Ebrahimi, Ex-Director of Legal & Contractual Affairs, PEDEC/NIOC and Professor of Oil and Gas Laws & Contracts, Tehran University.

Registration is still open for the upcoming “Principles of & Procedures for Negotiating, Drafting and Managing Oil & Gas Contractstaking place in Johannesburg, South Africa from 23 to 26 July 2012.

Event Announcement: Rolling Forecasts, Budgeting & Performance Measurement Master Class


For organizations operating in a world of continuous change, traditional budgeting has become out of date. Today, managers are turning to rolling forecasts to inspire and lead their organisations to superior performance.

Rolling forecasts offer greater visibility into future operating performance. Unlike budgets, they reflect the fact that operations don’t switch off at year-end. Making good business projections isn’t as hard as it sounds. Implemented correctly, rolling forecasting can be the single most valuable tool for identifying where changes need to be made in order to maximize profitability and minimize losses. Well-established forecasting techniques can take some of the guesswork out of operational decision making and put the focus back on optimizing profitability, rather than putting out fires.

This high value practical workshop will:
  • Illustrate the principles of business planning and rolling forecasts with examples and case studies drawn from a variety of industries
  • Identify the process for implementing rolling forecasts in your business
  • Equip you with the best practice techniques for designing an integrated business planning and rolling forecast process
  • Highlight how management can use rolling forecast information to improve existing performance analysis processes

The underlying theme is the careful selection and usage of Strategic Performance Measures at the heart of the Balanced Scorecard. The course combines a mixture of presentations, discussions and hands-on exercises (from which attendees will be expected to present their outcome to the course as a whole).

Course Highlights
  • Identify the current challenges in implementing strategy by learning how to undertake relevant strategic analysis prior to establishing a future business strategy

Event Announcement: Negotiating Successful Gas & LNG Contracts

SINGAPORE | 02 TO 05 JULY 2012

Effective training in today’s global gas and LNG market has become an essential need for relevant executives in both the public and private sectors. The worldwide market in Pipeline Gas and LNG has grown rapidly as result of demand and deregulation, bringing tremendous business opportunities and challenges for all stakeholders including government entities, producers, sellers, transporters and buyers etc. High contract value, complicated commercial terms, volatile prices, cultural differences and many other unpredicted risks have made contract negotiating, dispute resolution and risk management more and more challenging.

In response to such industry dynamics, Neoedge is bringing back “Negotiating Successful Gas & LNG Contracts” which will be held in Singapore from 02 to 05 July 2012. This advanced course provides practical and detailed training, in workshop format, and provides effective guidance in the critical considerations and conditions for successfully concluding Gas and LNG Sales Agreements. The course will enable participants to gain an insight into the way in which Buyers and Sellers view and negotiate Gas and LNG Sales Agreements, and will give participants a detailed understanding of the terms that are important in these transactions.

The course goes on to examine the inherent risks in a Gas or LNG Project, and how these risks are addressed within the Gas and LNG Sales Agreement. Risk assessment is a complex issue, and this course examines it from a commercial perspective, looking at the project structure and identifying how the commercial terms deal with risk in a satisfactory manner.

It will be led by Mr Anthony Way, Director and Managing Partner of The Energy Contract Company, an international consultancy to the deregulated energy industry. In this role, he has worked extensively as advisor to several major oil and gas companies and on a large number of energy projects worldwide. In his 30 years experience in the industry, he has led the negotiation of more than fifteen gas/LNG sale and purchase agreements in Asia, Europe and Africa and been involved, with a senior role, in many project financings.

Event Announcement: Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) Master Class


Effective training in today’s fast developing petroleum market is essential if relevant executives in both the public and private sectors are to create and implement the optimum regulatory and commercial environment for revenue and profit maximisation. Nowhere is this more important than in the development and negotiation of Production Sharing Contracts (PSCs), a critical part of global petroleum exploration, production and commercialization.

The purpose of a PSC is to facilitate the finding and commercialisation of deposits of oil and gas. However, production sharing is not the only regime used for that purpose, nor, within a production sharing regime, is the PSC the only instrument used; and, as with all such regimes, production sharing, and each individual PSC, exists within a historical, geopolitical and legal framework, and a global market, that informs its principles and its detailed implementation. It is imperative for relevant executives in both government and private sectors to understand the ever-changing impact of these forces on the PSC, and the PSC’s position and role among the many key factors needed for successful oil and gas commercialisation.

About your trainer:
He is a partner in the London office of Fulbright & Jaworski International LLP, one of the world’s leading energy law firms.  He has over 40 years experience in the structuring, negotiation  and documentation of upstream and downstream oil and gas, electricity and mining projects and investments, and related acquisitions, disposals, financings, sales and other transactions, and of the legislative, regulatory and investment regimes and structures required for them, acting for both governments and investors.

His assignments have involved more than 70 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, the CIS, Europe and the Middle East, as well as Australia (including the North-West Shelf and Cooper Basin) and the United Kingdom (including the North Sea).  

Registration is still open for the upcoming "Production Sharing Contracts (PSC) Master Class" taking place in Almaty, Kazakhstan from 11 to 14 June 2012.

Event Announcement: Corporate Information Security Master Class

SINGAPORE | 21 TO 24 MAY 2012

Millions of messages, data files and transactions flow through business networks and across the Internet each day, collectively driving the world economy. Our dependence on this vast electronic infrastructure is unquestioned; certainly few businesses can survive without safe networks and reliable Internet access.

At the same time, companies are increasingly at risk from cyber attack. Malicious intruders can bring business to a halt, as in a distributed denial-of-service attack that renders a system temporarily inoperable; or they can create thornier problems, as when a hacker unleashes data-destroying code or downloads proprietary secrets. In addition, attacks are seldom isolated: a breakdown in one company can reverberate throughout an entire economic sector, disrupting the flow of vital goods and services to many end-users.

Most businesses understand that cyber security is critical to their operations. Unfortunately, the information assurance community has yet to develop the risk analysis tools needed to understand the economic complexities that influence companies’ security purchases. Deciding how much to spend on what level of protection depends on numerous variables, many of them poorly understood.

 Through This Course You Will
  • ANALYZE current issues surrounding Information Security today
  • UNDERSTAND mitigation technique for your organisation
  • BENCHMARK your organisation against best practices worldwide
  • BE AWARE of present and future threat to your Information
  • UNDERSTAND Cloud Security, Hacktivism, Social Engineering, Penetration Testing, and more
  • STRUCTURE your organisation capabilities against present day threat
  • REALIZE your organization capabilities to the fullest in meeting attack intelligently

About your trainer:
  • Consultant to 3 of the 4 armed services of the US Department of Defense, US Department of the Interior, US Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, Lehman Brothers, Sony, Estee Lauder, Viacom, and many more.
