International exploration and production is challenging and exciting. Negotiating with governments and understanding the dynamics of their fiscal systems and/or production sharing contracts can mean the difference between success and failure. Long-time industry consultant, negotiator and lecturer, Daniel Johnston, provides an extremely clear and practical perspective on:

  • international exploration economics and risk analysis,
  • petroleum fiscal system analysis and design,
  • contract negotiations,
  • economic, financial and accounting aspects of: production sharing contracts, and royalty/tax systems.

International Exploration Economics, Risk, and Contracts Analysis is an anthology of articles from Johnston's column in the Petroleum Accounting and Financial Management Journal (PAFMJ) -- Institute of Petroleum Accounting, University of North Texas.
