Why Choose this Training Course?

Covid-19 is becoming as much an economic crisis as a public health emergency, with many contractors suffering from broken supply chains, poor cash flow, or legal impediments to performing their contractual obligations. In this unstable world, which has also been compromised by a dramatic drop in the oil price, our previously dependable strategic suppliers are now struggling to deliver the materials, services or works upon which we relied.

At the same time, some of our needs have changed. New requirements have become much more important - perhaps reducing upstream activities, moth-balling uneconomic production, obtaining new types of PPE, or simply cash preservation. The existing contracts for services, production, or manufacturing that had worked so well before the coronavirus, may now need significant modification.  

So how should contract owners adjust to a volatile commercial life after Covid-19? 

This cutting-edge PetroKnowledge Online Training Course takes a clear look at the role of contract management in the new, Post-Covid world. Join colleagues from across the world in a highly participative online three-day event, and rethink the contract management task and plan ahead.
