First International O&G Contracts Course for WBC

It was a week of firsts: WBC’s first International O&G Contracts course, delivered in Lagos and Mohammad Al-Ramahi delivering his first course as a WBC associate. The International O&G Contracts course had attendees from oil companies and engineering service companies. The course ran in March at excellent facilities provided by Saipem.

Run over 3 days, the course included a specialist talks from Mohammad on oil and gas contracts in Nigeria and considered various key issues relevant to practitioners in the oil and gas contracting area. Delegates enjoyed the practical content of the course and the interactive workshops throughout the three days.

As usual with our courses, the sessions were highly interactive, with everyone participating enthusiastically. All the delegates were focused and contributed to the exercises and case studies of oil and gas contracts and negotiations.

Delegates gave the course full marks on content and delivery – and clearly also developed a good network amongst themselves, something we always aim for on our courses too. Thank you to Mohammad, Saipem and our local partner Richardson Oil and Gas, for making the programme memorable.
