How This Seminar Works
Successful gas contract negotiators gain the advantage by understanding two very different things, neither of which directly relates to a sale. First, the Uniform Commercial Code Article 2 - Sales. This law, as adopted in the Governing Law state, controls a vast portion of the language typically found in every gas contract.
The second aspect of gas contract language comes from the fact that gas sales do not stand alone. Gas must be produced, treated, processed, and transported. Transporting pipelines require precise communications from the shippers who are buying and selling gas. Many gas contract clauses spring directly from the underlying physical gas industry. Knowledge of the law and the physical natural gas industry will virtually change the way gas contract negotiators think and act. Click here to register.
