Since the service agreement determines the company`s remuneration, the focus may be more on the work to the satisfaction of the host country than on the company`s own enrichment. Companies that enter into a service agreement simply need to provide their expertise to gain their rights and not interfere in the way host country leaders intend to manage and use these resources. In particular, the contract management team must ensure that all government mandates are met and performed in a timely manner to ensure a positive outcome. Under the service contract, a host government must have the necessary technological know-how and access to capital. Often this is not the case when exploration venture capital is needed. It is important to understand that a service contract can be executed for a minor task and is therefore preferable to other contract forms. Risk service contracts. It is an agreement by which the oil company is responsible by the public body, as a contractor, for the use of all venture capital for oil exploration and development. In the event that the contractor does not discover the oil tank, the contract will be foiled without any obligation of the parties. However, if the contractor is successful in the oil exploration of the volume of trade, he has the right to recover, in addition to a possible participation in the subsequent undertaking, the costs and remuneration related to the benefits. If not, the company will run out of bag. Such an agreement guarantees that the host government will retain sovereignty over natural resources at all times.
Like a PSA, the risk services contract deals with the situation where a host government tries to use private companies to withstand the risk of exploration. JVs may, on the whole, be categorized into two categories and not classified as legal. In the context of registered enterprises, the parties create a social society, headquartered in the host state, managed by a body jointly represented by both parties. Companies in the public domain operate solely on the basis of contractual agreements, without any legal entities being created. Pure Service ContractsA service contract is a contract between a contractor and a host government that generally covers a defined technical service that must be provided or concluded for a certain period of time. The investment of the service company is generally limited to the value of the equipment, tools and personnel used to perform the service. In most cases, the reimbursement of the service contractor is determined by the terms of the contract, with little consideration given to project performance or market factors. Payment for services is usually based on daily or hourly rates, a turnkey fixed rate or other specified amount. Payments can be made at specified intervals or after the service is completed.
