KICK START OUR SCCA OIL AND GAS CHAPTERWITH OUR 1ST OIL AND GAS EVENTA TALK ON "Sanctions and their impact on Contractual Obligations" 

How many of our In-house Legal Counsel in Singapore are dealing with Sanction issues in their work?

*************************************************************************************

In the oil and gas sector, we can’t run away from the implications of Sanctions imposed by the international bodies, eg. the United Nations, the United States of America and the European Union. Sanctions as a compliance issue came to the fore, especially in the oil and gas sector, when breaches of Sanctions could bring disastrous implications of prosecution by the relevant regulators.

In this seminar, we will look at how in the recent years, international political events giving rise to a proliferation of measures adopted by the United Nations and sovereign states, imposing trade restrictions, embargoes and other sanctions against delinquent governments and related entities and individuals. The result is a complicated, multi-layered regime of Sanctions with diverse political motivations and sometimes different scopes of application, which in turn means that the same transaction may be affected by different Sanctions. By their very nature, Sanctions have a direct impact on international trade. Taking a comparative law approach, this seminar will discuss the impact that Sanctions can have on day-to-day business contracts and their performance.

We are privileged that Philippe Bärtsch, a leading partner and industry expert with the international law firm, Schellenberg Wittmer Ltd. has agreed to join us to kick start our SCCA Oil and Gas Chapter event, with the 1st Talk, “Sanctions and their impact on Contractual Obligations"
