12 Part 1 Lifecycle Stages, De-risking, and Risk Allocation David Sweeney Houston, Texas Copyright 2013 by K&L Gates LLP. All rights reserved.

13 Unconventionals vs. Conventionals Key Differences? Some key differences between unconventional and conventional projects Project lifecycle Project phases tend to be less distinct when compared to conventional projects Certain risks decrease more gradually over time instead of abruptly at the end of a discrete phase Risk profile Risks are similar to a conventional project However, risks increase and decrease differently over time Types of risks examples of differences in impact Exploration Conventional dry hole Unconventional play concept /not-economic, well variability, acreage prospectivity Operational Conventional rig problems/downtime, lost hole, impenetrable substances Unconventional inefficiencies, difficulty obtaining services (e.g., frac crews), long cycle times, high service/material costs External Conventional commodity prices, regulatory framework, NIMBYism Unconventional commodity prices, regulatory framework, NIMBYism klgates.com 7

14 Project Lifecycle Conventional Discovery? FID/Sanction? First Production P&A/Decommission Phase Description Major Risk(s) Allocation Exploration Appraisal Development Production Search for hydrocarbon accumulation Determine whether accumulation is commercial Drill wells/build infrastructure/determine monetization scheme Produce and sell hydrocarbons Maintain production Dry hole Noncommercial discovery Cost overruns; Construction delays Commodity prices; Change in laws/regulatory environment/politics All participating parties High sole risk premium Participating parties Lower sole risk premium U.S. Participating parties (well-by-well) Non-U.S. All parties U.S. Participating parties (well-by-well) Non-U.S. All parties klgates.com 8

16 Similar Risks Different Degree & Duration * * Reproduced with permission of Preston Cody of Wood Mackenzie Consulting klgates.com 10

17 Exploration and Concept/Variability Risk Exploration vs. concept and well variability risk Conventional exploration risk is substantially eliminated through the drilling of exploration and appraisal wells Play concept risk and well variability risk continue for a much longer period of time over the life of the project Operator may have difficulty obtaining consistent, repeatable, and commercial results (well variability) and/or find that parts of a play are better than others (acreage prospectivity) Concept and Pilot phases vs. exploration phase Exploration and appraisal phases largely eliminate dry hole risk in conventional project Dry hole risk is less relevant for an unconventional project; however, play concept and well variability risks amount to the same thing no commercial project Concept and pilot phases do not usually eliminate these risks Lessons UNCONVENTIONAL E&P IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO MANUFACTURING NOT ALL UNCONVENTIONAL ACREAGE IS CREATED EQUAL klgates.com 11

18 Exploration and Concept/Variability Risk Risk allocation traditional methods Traditional Exploration and (sometimes) appraisal wells participate or relinquish/breach Follow-on/development wells after project de-risked well-by-well in U.S.; all-in or all-out outside U.S. Problems De-risking may take much longer and involve many more wells and production testing Allowing parties to get out potentially places concept/variability risk on one party, which may result in under-investment However, forcing parties to stay in may incentivize over-expenditure Risk allocation potential unconventional methodology Agree to specific, contractually mandated pilot program Sub-areas and different pilot stages Step-down premium matrix No sole risk/non-consent klgates.com 12

19 Operational Risk Ramp-up & exploit vs. development & production Similar risks, but different project sensitivities and timing Vs. conventional projects, unconventional projects generally: require more, and more expensive, wells/facilities have sharper decline curves have higher GOR/NGL content require ongoing capex, almost to the end of project life (in proven areas) have higher acquisition costs/taxes/royalties/fees These operational risks are largely eliminated by the end of the development phase in a conventional project but continue to the end of an unconventional project Risk allocation traditional methods Cost overrun provisions (not typically in U.S. onshore ventures) Procurement limitations Accumulation of surplus stock is to be avoided (COPAS 2005) Risk allocation proposed unconventional methodology Agree on operating philosophy (e.g., early pad based horizontal drilling vs. drill-and-hold vertical test wells) ahead of time Strategic procurement Alternative decision-making structures Consider (carefully ) CAPL operator challenge klgates.com 13

20 Generally External Risks Rarely dealt with contractually in a comprehensive fashion Managing these risks results in part from understanding them Political risk/nimbyism Changes in law Risk that operations required for optimal development (especially given thin unconventional margins) will not be permitted or made significantly more expensive Examples New York, the Netherlands, UK ban on hydraulic fracturing Municipality-required setbacks/landscaping Disclosure of frac fluid contents Risk allocation & handling Risks are generally shared by all participants May be handled to some degree by understanding concerns and legal requirements and setting up structures to monitor and deal with them ahead of time Shared operating philosophy NOC/governmental assistance Force majeure HSEQ programs In-country education and involvement klgates.com 14

21 Unconventional Development Outside the U.S. (How) Is the U.S. Experience Relevant (?) Different licensing/fiscal regimes may complicate risk allocation structure Mandatory relinquishments Host government take Nonmarket price regimes NIMBYism/Political risk Politicization of hydraulic fracturing in the U.S. may exacerbate issues outside the U.S. Lack of perceived benefit to holder of surface rights may erode support G&G Not all unconventional plays are created equal Projects may be more sensitive to lower production rates, steeper decline curves, and higher costs Infrastructure and equipment concerns Lack of physical infrastructure Lack of regulatory infrastructure Lack of large-scale service company presence Don t assume that what has worked in the U.S. will work outside the U.S. klgates.com 15

24 China Unconventional Oil & Gas Production Overview China gas consumption 162 bcm in 2013 Estimated to increase in the next 10 years to ~400 bcm per annum Rising demand due to host of factors including push for cleaner energy Shale production falls short In August 2014, shale gas production revised from bcm to 30 bcm Supply and demand targets too ambitious klgates.com 18

25 China Unconventional Oil & Gas Production Challenges (1) Technological, geological, technical, and topological hurdles Sichuan, most promising basin, but in a deeply faulted region and mountainous Water issues China is increasingly subject to water scarcity Significant challenge to secure water supply for water-intensive shale gas exploration Lack of sufficient transport China s existing pipeline network insufficient to effectively and efficiently transport gas to domestic demand centers Requirement for enormous capital investment Lack of financial resources by most interested developers coal producers and provincial energy firms "Shale gas reserves in the United States are like a flat plate, but in China that plate fell to the ground and broke and then someone stomped on it again." klgates.com 19

26 China Unconventional Oil & Gas Production Challenges (2) Discouragement of investment by low domestic prices Prices are controlled by National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and local governments, resulting in a lower price in China than international markets Much higher than break-even price of US$ /mmBtu in the U.S. due to combination of: Low regulated domestic price Low production rate from test wells Higher drilling costs 2 or 3 times U.S. costs More incentives needed Higher subsidies Tax incentives including tax deductions for shale gas development costs and tax breaks on imported equipment Extend effective period for firms to commercialize shale gas production Environmental concerns Bringing additional environmental damage to a country with existing environmental problems klgates.com 20

27 China Unconventional Oil & Gas Production Challenges (3) Regulation Jointly undertaken by NDRC, Ministry of Land Resources (MLR), Ministry of Finance (MOF), Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), and the State Administration of Taxation (SAT) Difficulty is getting regulators on the same page Have to address legal issues with overlapping shale gas blocks with traditional oil and gas blocks To date, China has issued only two or three rules about shale gas Uncertainty around a short -term subsidy program National and local government subsidies (± CNY 0.4 per cubic meters) are only available for shale gas produced between 2012 and 2015 klgates.com 21

29 Chinese Firms Overseas Acquisitions in Shale Gas (Oct 2010 to Dec 2012) (1) Date Buyer Seller Deal Value Shale Gas-Related Assets Oct 2010 Dec 2011 Feb 2011 Jan 2012 CNOOC Chesapeake US$2.16 billion One-third interest in 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale CNOOC & Sinopec Frac Tech US$2.2 billion Both firms expressed interest to acquire 30% state of the firm specializing in hydraulic fracturing technology CNOOC Chesapeake US$1.27 billion One-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming Sinopec Devon Energy US$2.5 billion One-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale; 350,000 acres in Michigan; 235,000 Utica Shale acres in Ohio; 215,000 acres in Oklahoma; and 320,000 acres in Wyoming Source: Company announcements klgates.com

30 Chinese Firms Overseas Acquisitions in Shale Gas (Oct 2010 to Dec 2012) (2) Date Buyer Seller Deal Value Shale Gas Related Assets Feb 2012 July 2012 Dec 2012 CNPC Shell US$1 billion (reported) CNOOC Nexen US$15.1 billion (for the entire company) 20% stake in Shell s 100%-owned land and shale assets in Groundbirch of northeast British Columbia 300,000 acres of shale gas lands in northeast British Columbia, estimated to hold 9 38 Tcf of shale gas resource CNPC Encana US$2.2 billion 49.9% stake in the Duvernay shale gas formation (224,000 acres) holding an estimated 31 Tcf of gas resources Source: Company announcements klgates.com

31 Conclusion Great demand for shale gas but many challenges and risks Fresh water, clean air, and a healthy environment are significant political issues Remains to be seen whether Chinese government will give more incentives and address regulatory issues to entice Chinese and foreign companies including Chinese oil majors to invest in unconventional oil and gas klgates.com 25

42 Part 4 Australia Unconventional Oil & Gas Simon Salter Perth, Australia Copyright 2013 by K&L Gates LLP. All rights reserved.

43 Australia Shale Gas/Oil Source: U.S. EIA/ARI World Shale Gas and Shale Oil Resource Assessment Report June 2013 klgates.com 37

44 Overview of Shale Gas in Australia Industry Background One of the world s largest shale gas reserves, with technical recoverable resources estimated at 437 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) according to various reports Asia s increasing demand for clean energy driving Australia s gas exploration & production Cooper Basin straddling South Australia and Queensland: One of the few regions outside the U.S. commercially producing shale gas Has existing infrastructure for conventional oil and gas, which will facilitate construction of facilities and transportation of shale gas to market klgates.com 38

45 Regulation Legal Framework (1) Subject to the same regulatory framework as conventional gas Legislation operates on Federal, State, Territory, and local council level Exploration and extraction are primarily regulated at the State and Territory level, or at the Federal level in the case of offshore developments Federal laws affect gas activities in all States, including those relating to taxation, native rights, environmental protection, and occupational health and safety Local council laws apply in respect of development and planning approvals klgates.com 39

46 Legal Framework (2) Ownership of hydrocarbon resources Federal, State, and Territory governments own all hydrocarbon reserves Rights to explore and produce hydrocarbons are granted through various petroleum titles and approvals from relevant government authority Landholders therefore do not have ownership to gas resources, although they may be entitled to compensation for loss of use of land due to gas exploration and extraction activities klgates.com 40

47 Administration Legal Framework (3) As shown in the schematic below, shale gas activities are governed by the various Petroleum Act equivalents and relevant Regulations in each State klgates.com 41

48 Key Considerations for Shale Gas Projects in Australia (1) Exploration stage A permit is required from the relevant State and Territory authority Exploration permit will cover a defined area and have an initial term of five to six years with a right to renew the permit or progress to an exploitation lease Permit will grant holder the right to enter land and conduct test drilling and surveying activities Terms of permit vary according to each State, but all are subject to meeting certain criteria It also specifies minimum annual expenditure and development levels to ensure that holders continue to invest in the permit area klgates.com 42

49 Key Considerations for Shale Gas Projects in Australia (2) Production stage Extraction and sale of shale gas requires a production license from the relevant regulating authority Term of production license varies in each jurisdiction but is typically for at least 21 years License entitles license holder to extract gas and retain economic benefit of gas produced, subject to payment of royalty to the State Like exploration permits, production licenses generally specify minimum annual expenditure and development levels klgates.com 43

50 Key Considerations for Shale Gas Projects in Australia (3) Water resources rights State and Territory legislation governs access to and use of water Water rights are administered through legal instruments, property titles, or contracts with a water service infrastructure operator Management of environmental risk associated with contaminated wastewater is usually a condition of production license klgates.com 44

51 Key Considerations for Shale Gas Projects in Australia (4) Fracking Significant political issue Concerned with use of certain chemicals in fracking process and associated risks to environment and groundwater Most jurisdictions have implemented regulations on fracking process and use of certain chemicals Western Australia has recently released draft regulations for consultation to closely monitor fracking process associated with shale gas production In Queensland and the Northern Territory, laws are in place that restrict use of certain chemicals in fracking In Victoria, currently a moratorium prohibiting all fracking until June 2015 klgates.com 45

52 Key Considerations for Shale Gas Projects in Australia (5) Fracking (Cont d) In June this year, a bill was passed through federal parliament to protect groundwater resources in every state except Western Australia Western Australia was not included because the legislation was limited to areas where coal seam gas is found, and Western Australia s reserves hold shale gas klgates.com 46

53 Other General Regulatory Considerations (1) Environmental and planning considerations Shale gas exploration and production operations are subject to significant laws and regulations governing environmental protection Violation may result in issuance of injunctions limiting or prohibiting operations, as well as administrative, civil, and even criminal proceedings Regulators may require operator to prepare and implement a plan to improve environmental performance of a project, and may amend the conditions on an existing environmental approval klgates.com 47

54 Other General Regulatory Considerations (2) Native Title considerations Native Title is the term used to describe certain rights held by indigenous Australians in respect of traditional land and water Native Title can only exist where the claimant group has and maintains a traditional connection with the land or waters If Native Title rights exist, they must be taken into account and certain procedures must be complied with, including in some cases, payment of compensation A register of Native Title interests is kept, and searches may be obtained from relevant courts and National Native Title Tribunal to establish whether a parcel of land is subject to a Native Title claim or interest klgates.com 48

55 Other General Regulatory Considerations (3) Royalty considerations There are 3 mains types of royalties levied in Australia: Unit-based a fixed monetary rate is applied on a physical rather than financial basis, for example, a set amount of dollars per cubic meter of gas extracted Value-based (ad valorem) a uniform % of value of the resource is charged as royalty, for example, 10% of the post-wellhead value of gas extracted Profit-based a % is applied to profit realized, e.g., 10% of profits achieved klgates.com 49

56 Other General Regulatory Considerations (4) Fiscal regime and tax incentives Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT) is a profit based tax that is levied on petroleum projects From 1 July 2012, the PRRT is applied to all Australian onshore and offshore gas and LNG projects Previously relevant was the carbon pricing mechanism; however the Australian government abolished the carbon tax with effect from 1 July 2014 klgates.com 50
