KYC Best Practices: IECA White Paper Discussion


Intro to the IECA White Paper-KYC Best Practices; learn why virtually all participants in the energy industry need to understand and implement strong customer identification programs. Explore (i) the statutory and regulatory requirements for banks and other financial participants to adopt KYC policies, (ii) the criminal liabilities for anti-money laundering and terrorism financing laws applicable to everyone and managing that liability by implementing strong KYC practices, and (iii) the risk of inadvertent exposure to counter-party credit risk that can be managed by deploying a robust KYC program. We will include brief case studies, ranging from AML violations, counter-party credit risk exposures that might have been avoided, the KYC implications of new cryptocurrencies, and cyber-security implications of protecting KYC data.

Learning Objective:

  • Identify key elements of KYC and the implications to the energy industry.

Political Turmoil, Government Instability, Unpredictable Economies and Trump: The International Arbitration Approach to Issues Impacting the Global Energy Market


This presentation will provide an overview of important issues impacting the global energy market and how investors can mitigate against commercial and political risk and how this is viewed through the lens of international arbitration. For instance: elections in 14 Latin American companies and others in Europe over the next two years are expected to lead to new energy policies in those countries. For example, Mexico’s new president has a vision for Pemex that is a complete reversal of the one shared by the prior regime, which is causing anxiety for recent investors in Mexico’s energy sector. To a more drastic extreme, the consequences of Venezuela’s tragic economic collapse has yet to be determined but the various scenarios are not comforting for foreign investors. In Guyana, where multinational energy companies hold major concessions, recently failed elections have caused uncertainty to abound regarding the treatment of existing concessions with the government. The Trump effect can be seen by the current administration’s view on international treaties such as NAFTA. U.S. investors have often relied on the protections of US treaties to protect their foreign investments, but those treaties are being altered or dropped. Likewise, the attitude towards China and Russia continues to shift. And of course, there is Brexit, which may impact energy investments in the North Sea. Some assurance for mitigating both commercial and political risk when investing in energy projects worldwide can be provided through international arbitration. This presentation will explain the commercial terms that should be considered when investing in energy projects worldwide, as well as treaty protections available to investors for future and current energy investments.

Learning Objective:

  • A comprehensive overview global energy markets and international arbitration.

Is Your Inventory Working for You?


Inventory is the required input or output for those of us operating in the energy space. We need inventory to produce energy and then what we produce becomes inventory. Inventory is key. But for those companies that physically own inventory, it can be both a great asset, as well as a significant drain in resource, both operational and financial. In this presentation we will focus on inventory and ask the question whether your inventory is really working hard for you?

Learning Objective:

IECA QFC Stay Rule Compliance Document Logistic


Phil Lookadoo, Partner at Haynes and Boone, LLP and IECA Board member, takes viewers through the user-friendly steps companies will take when using the new IECA Bilateral Amendment to amend their existing Qualified Financial Contracts (QFCs) with GSIB banking organizations. As of January 1, 2020, if a GSIB has not conformed (i.e., amended) its existing QFCs with a counterparty to comply with the U.S. Bank Regulators’ QFC Stay Rules, then the GSIB is prohibited by the regulators from entering into any new trade on or after January 1 with that counterparty.

The IECA Bilateral Amendment, itself a customized version of the ISDA® Bilateral Amendment, can easily be used, in lieu of the ISDA® 2018 US Resolution Stay Protocol or the ISDA® Bilateral Amendment, to amend a company’s existing ISDA® Master Agreements, EEI® Master Agreements, NAESB® Base Contracts, crude and refined product GTCs, and other QFCs with GSIB counterparties. Following a quick walk-through of a user’s logistical steps and a brief discussion of the helpful resources found in the QFC User’s Guide, Phil answered viewers’ questions, including the three reasons why an energy company should use the IECA Bilateral Amendment instead of the ISDA® Bilateral Amendment or the ISDA® 2018 Protocol. View all of these documents in the IECA Resource Library.

Supply Chain and Credit


Check out the follow up webinar from Jim Gellert,  Continuing the Conversation: Expanding Credit Horizons & Evaluating Supply Chain Counterparties.

In challenging markets, cost cutting and budget management means that supply chain risk managers and procurement organizations need to be efficient and more sensitive than ever to ensure they work with suppliers who can deliver high quality goods and services to avoid exposing their company to reputational, revenue, business interruption and other risks. At the core of resilient supply chains are financially healthy suppliers. Credit professionals need to understand the nature of suppliers, the impact of their ability to grow with an organization as well as their potential to fail. Traditional credit analysis looks at downside risk without assessing upside potential of a company. In this session we will explore how credit professionals should evaluate their procurement and supply chain counterparties to detect leading indicators of other risk areas such as quality and delivery, and work with counterparties as partners to deliver maximum enterprise.

Objectives:

  • Learn about differences in credit decisions for analysis of procurement parties and how to apply credit processes to suppliers and vendors.
