Natural resources projects require significant capital investment. Without financing, even the best geological resources will remain undiscovered and undeveloped. The types of financing that may be available for oil & gas, and mining development constantly evolve to try to meet the demands of both the resource companies and investors. Increasingly, resource companies utilize a multitude of funding sources to develop the same project. These funding sources may have different (and sometimes competing) objectives, timelines, and legal requirements, and have various benefits and drawbacks that should be carefully evaluated in light of the specific situation for the development project. Complexity increases when resource companies try to negotiate and coordinate these various streams of financing, especially when the two sides seem to be speaking different languages.
This institute will examine various methods of securing financing, review some of the agreements used to document the associated obligations and benefits of the parties to such financing transactions, and will bridge the gap of understanding and expectation between those who have money, and those who want it.
