The electricity sector in Nigeria remains viable and continues to attract investments amid enormous risks. To reflect the growing interest in this sector, ESQ Trainings has designed highly topical courses on Power Contract, Negotiation, Documentation, Regulatory, EPC Contract and Power Project Financing.
This workshop is highly practical in its focus, initially providing delegates with a detailed understanding of the power sector and how it works, critical issues to be noted when negotiating power projects and a robust project financing “toolkit” that encompasses risk analysis, debt, documentation and borrower/sponsor considerations. The training will also explore the specific issues relating to the financing of power projects in Nigeria.
The workshop explores some of the critical issues in the negotiation, documentation and financing of key power projects. A key aspect of this programme is the workshop which focuses on the approach of the banker to project analysis and debt structuring – and how this is changing since the Credit Crisis. Since the project Sponsors/Borrowers are generally interested in maximizing project debt, the willingness (or otherwise) of the lender to provide more or less leverage is clearly crucial.
The programme combines up-to-date legal and regulatory issues with practical methods of translating this law into documentation. The Course provides deep understanding of the essential skills required for assembling bankable projects, especially from the borrowers’ and lenders’ perspectives. Delegates will gain a deeper understanding of the Energy market trends and how to identify or analyze prospective borrowers, arrange credit facilities and secure approval from bank credit committees.
