Chris Thorpe's latest book is essential reading for those in the international oil and gas industry who are involved in negotiating or implementing Upstream Petroleum Agreements. The book gives the reader an overview of upstream agreements, focusing on the technical and commercial realities and using real deals done by real people as examples.

Chris shares his 25 years experience as a leading lawyer in the oil and gas industry to introduce the most common and important upstream agreements, looking at the various types of grants of rights, joint venture agreements, supply and construction contracts, and agreements for the transportation and sale of production. Never before has a book been published for the international oil and gas sector by a practitioner covering the fundamentals of upstream agreements. It will be of value to newcomers to the upstream who want an introduction to the subject, and will also be of interest to more experienced practitioners.

Fundamentals of Upstream Petroleum Agreements is destined to become an industry bible, and no Oil Ministry, oil company or contractor should be without a copy as a source of reference for future dealings. Every newcomer to your commercial department should be presented with a copy to study before being let loose on your companies contracts and projects.
