Little attention has been given to the specific situation of new oil and gas producers. Such countries face a particular set of issues, as they move to draft contract terms, regulations and laws to direct investment behaviour in their country, and set up institutions to control the actors involved in their nascent petroleum sector effectively. They may also face challenges related to limited institutional capacity or trained staff.

This workshop will provide a forum for knowledge exchange and help emerging producers think critically about the various policy options available during the first steps of exploration and development or when restructuring their sector. 

This event is part of the New Petroleum Producers Discussion Group project.
