Description

Petroleum provides a huge source of revenue for producer governments. This course looks at the choices governments make in balancing resource taxes and corporate taxes and the share of production retained by the state. In looking at the options for taxation of petroleum and natural resources, you will study the regulation of production (to see who and what is being taxed). You will also learn about the fiscal options of resource taxes and corporate taxes, and understand that the state’s share of production is also revenue for the state. You will also learn about:

  • the project financing of petroleum production through debt, forward purchases, and production payments
  • how different taxes interact to create the total tax burden
  • limited recourse financing of petroleum projects
  • how different investors have different financing needs, and the implications for the investor group
  • how governments balance the need for revenue with the need to attract investors
  • dispute avoidance and resolution
You do not need to be a lawyer to take this course. CEPMLP has been a global voice of energy law and policy since 1977. We are now working towards the transition to low-carbon economies worldwide. With over 6,000 postgraduate alumni from more than 50 countries, we prepare our graduates for high–profile careers in the public and private sectors.

About this university

International students

For students travelling from outside the UK, the International Advice Service is available to help them with all aspects of the transition. They offer confidential advice and help on matters such as immigration and visas, working during and after studies as well as community group information and links to international hospitality schemes. There is support for international families as well as arranging cultural and social events during the year aimed primarily at international students. They are based in the Enquiry Centre on Campus Green or via email. Students are represented by the University's Student Representative Council while the Students Association organises the societies, clubs and organisations outside the classroom. It is unusual because it isn't a member of the National Union of Students due to cost and political considerations. The union is based in Airlie Place, at the centre of the main campus and has a bar, nightclub and refectory on site. There are 42 clubs associated with the Sports Union at the university and these have annual award ceremonies as well as an annual Ball. A multi-million pound redevelopment saw a number of new facilities for sports around the university including the first UK gym with mp3/mp4 compatible personal viewing screens.
