  • Project valuation with financial leasing contracts

    Financial leasing is prevalent in many projects in the oil and energy industries. Examples are tariff payments in existing pipelines, processing tariffs, leasing of rigs and leasing of LNG transportation ships.

  • The outlook for energy demand to 2010

    This paper examines the likely developments in world energy markets up to 2010. It is expected that world energy demand will continue to grow steadily and fossil fuels will account for about 90% of total demand to 2010. Moreover, a structural shift in the shares of different regions in world energy demand is likely to occur and the OECD share of world energy demand will fall. World oil demand is ...
