Overview

– Making Deals and Developing Win-Win Strategies between the Private and Public Sector –

Following the success of various workshops on PPPs that we have been running across Africa in the past 3 years, Neoedge is proud to announce the maiden edition of Africa PPPs Investment and Development Summit 2014 (APIDS 2014) in Accra, Ghana, West Africa.

Public Private Partnerships is vital in addressing the infrastructure challenges that Africa face, however it has to be administered correctly. Projects bankability, capacity building and government commitment are the few must have in every successful PPPs.

In this summit we will be gathering senior officials from public sectors across the globe and PPPs experts from the global arena. Our hope is that capacity will be built as international best practices are demonstrated in various case studies. At the same time we believe that this summit will be an excellent platform for both public and private sector to explore potential collaborations in meeting Africa needs via Public Private Partnerships.

The following key themes on Public Private Partnership will be addressed in-depth with Case Studies:

  • Latest update on PPPs project globally
  • Latest PPPs trend in Africa – uniquely Africa
  • PPPs application for transport sector (road, rail, airport, ports, etc)
  • PPPs application for social infrastructure sector (school, hospitals, etc)
  • Water and power sectors (utilities)
  • Financing Infrastructure Projects and Project Finance
  • Alternative Finance
  • Crafting feasible deals
  • Bankability of PPPs projects
  • Legislative framework and government support
  • PPPs procurement and fraud prevention
  • Project Management

Why Attend?

Africa is unique. It is crucial to understand the continent where the economy has boomed for the past decade. As the economy boomed the needs for infrastructure growth is inevitable. Partnership with the private sector to meet these infrastructure demand is given, however the question is whether the project will be able to meet the needs of public sector and commercially viable for the private sector. The opportunity is huge if we can strike a balance between public needs and commercial viability of a project. This is what we are trying to achieve in this summit.

For the past 3 years we had received requests from many countries in Africa to a conference that would gather both public and private sectors in order to put everyone in the same page. The Africa PPPs Investment and Development Summit (APIDS) 2014 will provide this platform and enable the discussion needed to get PPPs initiatives in Africa moving.

Ghana has been selected as venue of this summit as the country is in the early stage of PPPs implementation and presents many investment opportunities for various entities with expertise in PPPs.

We are looking at both networking and capacity building through this summit. APIDS 2014 provides many great opportunities for capacity building as various international best practices will be demonstrated through case studies.

Fuel Management Master Class

FUEL MANAGEMENT MASTER CLASS

Mastering the essentials of global markets for oil, gas, coal, renewable and strategize your fuel   purchase management

23 – 26 June 2014, Singapore

Official event website: http://neo-edge.com/event-line-up/commodities-supply-chain/fuel-management-master-class/

Overview

For full agenda, please email us your detailed contact information to rueburn@neo-edge.com . Please indicate subject “Fuel Management Master Class”. 

Some 60% to 80% of ongoing costs for electric generators and somewhat lower percentages for energy intensive industries are made up of fuel. For electric utilities and IPPs fuel purchasing also tends to be the greatest source of troubled relations with vendors and suppliers. It is also an area where in many instances management improvements with little or no capital cost can result in significant cost savings.

Fuel purchasing is a function where it is critical that all levels of management understand the fundamentals of the market. Unfortunately it is also a subject upon which there is a great deal of mythology in the business press with discussions of subjects such as the imminent advent of “peak oil” or “peak gas.” All too often judgment on fuel purchasing is made in response to such media discussion.

The goal of the workshop is to provide an understanding of how global markets for oil, gas and coal work. This involves an examination of market fundamentals: reserves, the cost of production, and demand. Also included is a discussion of how environmental concerns play an increasing role in inter-fuel competition.

The workshop includes an examination of the rise and importance of paper markets in oil, coal and natural gas, first in North America and Europe, and now developing gradually in Asia, Africa and Australia. There is a critical analysis of how price data is gathered for oil and coal and then published and the role which derivative markets play in spot market pricing.

The various factors which play a role in the development of a purchasing strategy will be reviewed. Ultimately the various factors boil down to trade-offs between supply security and price. Utilities with access to nuclear hydro power may have greater freedom to buy more spot coal or oil in times of soft market conditions. In other instances, the existence or absence of local resource may play a major role in shaping decisions about fuel selection and combustion technology. Increasingly government policies driven by environmental concerns are playing a role in fuel selection and efficiency of fuel use.

Fuel contract design and language is a major part of the workshop. We shall examine alternative wording for contract fundamentals dealing with volume and quality. Pricing provisions will be an important part of the discussion. Indexation to published prices, long common in the oil markets is becoming increasingly common for coal in Asia. For almost a decade it has been the norm in the European coal market. Although pricing is increasingly determined by reference to published indices, it continues to be important for the buyer and seller to agree to the details of the force majeure, dispose resolution and termination provisions. As well, in order to avoid the risk of disputes and misunderstandings, contracts should carefully define provisions for custody transfer, quality testing and weighing.

The focus of this Master Class will be on fossil fuels purchasing: coal of various sorts, natural gas (pipeline and LNG) fuel oils and if there is participant interest, biomass purchasing can be included. The geographic focus will be South and East Asia, Africa and South America. Experience from North America and Europe will be drawn upon if it is particularly relevant to these other markets. Principals and techniques covered will be applicable to utilities, IPPs, large industrial fuel users such as cement and chemical plants. The Workshop will span a broad range of issues from the primary factors driving global fossil fuel markets and national energy security to the details of drafting effective fuel purchase contracts. Contracted provision language will be drawn from a library of over 300 international fuel contracts. The rising impact on fuel markets of renewables and environmental concerns.

 

Programme

For full agenda, please email us your detailed contact information to rueburn@neo-edge.com . Please indicate subject “Fuel Management Master Class”. 

In this master class we will be discussing the market movement of both conventional fuels (Oil, coal, gas/LNG) and renewable resources which are used for power generations. We will explore many purchase strategies and analyse tradeoff between supply security and pricing. Various hedging techniques will be discussed together with the drivers of price volatility. Contracts provisions will also be an area of focus in this master class in order to cope with volume and quality shortfalls.

Global Market Basics:

 We will focus on the fundamentals of supply and demand: the size and location of the reserve base, production costs and the interaction between demand and price. While short-term price changes are often the reaction to geopolitical or financial events it is possible to pick out clues to form an understanding of the longer term direction of fossil fuel prices. An assessment of decades of prices enable a much better understanding how price changes in oil, natural gas and coal impact on one another. Environmental concerns increasingly play a role in fuel selection and inter-fuel competition.

Choice of Purchasing Strategy:

For IPPs the choice of purchasing strategy (mixture of short-term and long-term contracts) is often a product of the security concerns of the banks and the economic needs of the project developers. For utilities the trade off is between price and the need for security of supply (which may vary with season and type of fuel). Other considerations, such as availability of hard currency or a desire to foster regional economic development may also play a role. Industrial fuel purchasing is subject to the price and flexibility needs of the ultimate product produced, e.g., cement, chemicals, pulp, and paper. Many buyers of all types are increasingly using derivative markets to dampen price volatility and to provide greater price predictability.

Prices and Hedging

Trend in recent years for all fuels has been to short term pricing (quarterly or monthly) even in long-term contracts. Energy indexes are attracting increasing interest from regulators in the US, Europe and Asia. This is accompanied by the rise of paper markets for all fuels. There is a great importance of paper markets in Europe and the US and gradual development of derivatives trading in oil and coal in Australia, Singapore, China, etc. In the midst of this new financial legislation in the US (Dodd-Frank) and proposed in Europe will alter derivatives trading globally.

Major Contractual Provisions

Experience shows that things go unexpectedly wrong in many medium and long-term fuel purchasing arrangements. The goal is to build a contract structure which is not only fair to both the buyer and the supplier but also robust enough to withstand the numerous problems which will arise during the course of a long-term business relationship. Even spot purchase contracts are about much more than price. Real world outcomes indicate that things frequently can go wrong: mines flood or have strikes; trains derail; and coal loaders break down; natural gas fields have unanticipated production problems. Contracts should cope with all of the volume and quality shortfalls in the product that can be anticipated. There should also be clearly defined dispute resolution mechanisms which allow for timely settlement of contentious issues.

Is Human Capital and Talent Management crucial to Oil & Gas Industry?

Definitely!

Talent management is just another one of those pesky Human Resources terms. Right?

Wrong.

Talent management is an organization’s commitment to recruit, retain, and develop the most talented and superior employees available in the job market. While the global economic slowdown may have had an effect on the War for Talent, the issue is still critical to the Oil and Gas sector in Africa due to competitive market for talent and lack of skilled candidates and employees in the sector. Combined with the problem of an aging workforce in Oil and Gas organisations globally, the historic lack of investment in skills and problems with attracting the best and the brightest into the sector is a major issue for organisations that must begin to be addressed now.

Talent management is a useful term when it describes an organization’s commitment to hire, manage and retain talented employees. It comprises all of the work processes and systems that are related to retaining and developing a superior workforce.

What appears to differentiate talent management focused practitioners and organizations from organizations that use terminology such as human capital management or performance management, is their focus on the manager’s role, as opposed to reliance on Human Resources, for the life cycle of an employee within an organization.

Upon extensive research, Neoedge, a Singapore based company understand the importance of human capital and talent management especially for the oil and gas industry. Neoedge recognize key human capital and talent management issues impacting on oil and gas industry globally and specifically in Africa. In partnership with Alistair Redgrave of ALR Learning & Development Limited, HR development strategist with 23 years of experience, a 4 days workshop is launched and designed to help organizations address these issues by exploring both human capital and talent management strategies required in the context of oil and gas organizations’ business strategy in Africa, and most importantly, help the organization to develop a practical action plan for the development and implementation of a human capital and talent management.

Talent management does give managers a significant role and responsibility in the recruitment process and in the ongoing development of and retention of superior employees. In some organizations, only top potential employees are included in the talent management system. In other companies, every employee is included in the process

Talent management is a business strategy and must be fully integrated within all of the employee related processes of the organization. Attracting and retain talented employees, in a talent management system, is the job of every member of the organization, but especially managers who have reporting staff, the talent.

The workshop will have a practical rather than theoretical base as extensive use will be made of research and case studies to illustrate practical examples of the development and implementation of Talent Management programs. It will highlight how these best practices can be modified and applied to the specific context of the participants’ organisations in the context of Oil and Gas in Africa.

The Human Capital & Talent Management in Oil & Gas Industry workshop is a thought provoking workshop that will allow participants to step out of the corporate perspective and see the function in its purest form.

Human Capital Ghana 2014Following the success of various workshops on Human Capital and Talent Management workshop that Neoedge have been running across Africa in the past few years, there has been numerous requests and demand for the event to be held in West Africa. Neoedge is proud to announce that the next run of the workshop will be held in Accra, Ghana, West Africa on the 20th to 23rd October 2014.

Executive Summary 

– Making Deals and Developing Win-Win Strategies between the Private and Public Sector –

Following the success of various workshops on PPPs that we have been running across Africa in the past 3 years, Neoedge is proud to announce the maiden edition of Africa PPP Investment and Development Summit 2014 (APIDS 2014) in Accra, Ghana, West Africa.

Public Private Partnerships is vital in addressing the infrastructure challenges that Africa face, however it has to be administered correctly. Projects bankability, capacity building and government commitment are the few must have in every successful PPPs.

In this summit we will be gathering senior officials from public sectors across the globe and PPPs experts from the global arena. Our hope is that capacity will be built as international best practices are demonstrated in various case studies. At the same time we believe that this summit will be an excellent platform for both public and private sector to explore potential collaborations in meeting Africa needs via Public Private Partnerships.

The following key themes on PPPs Investment and Development will be addressed in-depth with Case Studies:

  • Latest update on PPPs project globally
  • Latest PPPs trend in Africa – uniquely Africa
  • PPPs application for transport sector (road, rail, airport, ports, etc)
  • PPPs application for social infrastructure sector (school, hospitals, etc)
  • Water and power sectors (utilities)
  • Financing Infrastructure Projects and Project Finance
  • Alternative Finance
  • Crafting feasible deals
  • Bankability of PPPs projects
  • Legislative framework and government support
  • PPPs procurement and fraud prevention
  • Project Management
  • Contract Managements
  • Tariffs and regulations
  • Risk Identification, Mitigation and Management

Africa is unique. It is crucial to understand the continent where the economy has boomed for the past decade. As the economy boomed the needs for infrastructure growth is inevitable. Partnership with the private sector to meet these infrastructure demand is given, however the question is whether the project will be able to meet the needs of public sector and commercially viable for the private sector. The opportunity is huge if we can strike a balance between public needs and commercial viability of a project. This is what we are trying to achieve in this summit.

For the past 3 years we had received requests from many countries in Africa to a conference that would gather both public and private sectors in order to put everyone in the same page. The Africa PPPs Investment and Development Summit (APIDS) 2014 will provide this platform and enable the discussion needed to get PPPs initiatives in Africa moving.

West Africa has been selected as venue of this summit as the country is in the early stage of PPPs implementation and presents many investment opportunities for various entities with expertise in PPPs.

Neoedge to launch fuel management training in Singapore

Neoedge Singapore will be launching an event on fuel management, with focus on essentials of global markets for oil, gas, coal, renewable and discussions on strategizing fuel purchase management for feedstocks.

Some 60% to 80% of ongoing costs for electric generators and somewhat lower percentages for energy intensive industries are made up of fuel. For electric utilities and IPPs fuel purchasing also tends to be the greatest source of troubled relations with vendors and suppliers. It is also an area where in many instances management improvements with little or no capital cost can result in significant cost savings.

Fuel purchasing is a function where it is critical that all levels of management understand the fundamentals of the market. Unfortunately it is also a subject upon which there is a great deal of mythology in the business press with discussions of subjects such as the imminent advent of “peak oil” or “peak gas.” All too often judgment on fuel purchasing is made in response to such media discussion.

The goal of the master class is to provide an understanding of how global markets for oil, gas and coal work. This involves an examination of market fundamentals: reserves, the cost of production, and demand. Also included is a discussion of how environmental concerns play an increasing role in inter-fuel competition.

Fuel Management Master Class - Click image to direct event website.

The workshop includes an examination of the rise and importance of paper markets inoil, coal and natural gas, first in North America and Europe, and now developing gradually in Asia, Africa and Australia. There is a critical analysis of how price data is gathered for oil and coal and then published and the role which derivative markets play in spot market pricing.

The various factors which play a role in the development of a purchasing strategy will be reviewed. Ultimately the various factors boil down to trade-offs between supply security and price. Utilities with access to nuclear hydro power may have greater freedom to buy more spot coal or oil in times of soft market conditions. In other instances, the existence or absence of local resource may play a major role in shaping decisions about fuel selection and combustion technology. Increasingly government policies driven by environmental concerns are playing a role in fuel selection and efficiency of fuel use.

Fuel contract design and language is a major part of the programme. Participants shall examine alternative wording for contract fundamentals dealing with volume and quality. Pricing provisions will be an important part of the discussion. Indexation to published prices, long common in the oil markets is becoming increasingly common for coal in Asia. For almost a decade it has been the norm in the European coal market. Although pricing is increasingly determined by reference to published indices, it continues to be important for the buyer and seller to agree to the details of the force majeure, dispose resolution and termination provisions. As well, in order to avoid the risk of disputes and misunderstandings, contracts should carefully define provisions for custody transfer, quality testing and weighing.

The focus of this Master Class will be on fossil fuels purchasing: coal of various sorts, natural gas (pipeline and LNG) fuel oils and if there is participant interest, biomass purchasing can be included. The geographic focus will be South and East Asia, Africa and South America. Experience from North America and Europe will be drawn upon if it is particularly relevant to these other markets. Principals and techniques covered will be applicable to utilities, IPPs, large industrial fuel users such as cement and chemical plants. The Workshop will span a broad range of issues from the primary factors driving global fossil fuel markets and national energy security to the details of drafting effective fuel purchase contracts. Contracted provision language will be drawn from a library of over 300 international fuel contracts. The rising impact on fuel markets of renewables and environmental concerns.
