Course description

Economic Sanctions on Oil and Gas Development

Governments and international bodies have imposed economic sanctions affecting the oil and gas industry in various forms including:

  • embargos on the importation of crude oil and finished products
  • prohibition on the export of oil field technology and service
  • restrictions on financial transactions
  • sequestration of assets; and
  • limitations on personal travel

Sanctions are adopted for the purpose of achieving domestic and foreign policy goals that range from combating money-laundering to curbing state-sponsored aggression. As a general rule, economic sanctions are primarily imposed on a target-state. However, secondary sanctions can be levelled at third-parties as well.

Commercial and financial organizations must know which countries, transactions, and entities, are subject to economic sanctions. With this awareness, they are able to satisfy their compliance obligations in terms of licencing, reporting and seeking waivers. At the same time, they can structure the terms and conditions of their agreements to provide the flexibility for suspension or termination of performance for the duration of the sanction period.
