Edited by John Dewar

Abstract

The second edition of this text on project financing continues to provide guidance on the legal and practical issues relevant to international projects. As well as addressing the basic principles which affect the structuring and documentation of project financings, the book also explains structural, legal, and contractual differences between the various sectors such as transportation, telecommunication,infrastructure/public private partnerships, conventional, renewable and nuclear power, mining, and oil and gas, the latter sector focus being new to this edition. The book considers the application of English and New York law in cross-border documentation and legal and practical matters associated with running financing projects in civil law jurisdictions. Different sources of funding are also examined, such as banking and international bond documentation, and Islamic financing practice, in particular the use of Murabaha financing techniques and with additional analysis in this edition of the growing sukuk (Isalmic bond) market. This includes the legal and documentation issues arising from the use of such financing techniques and how they interact with each other from a legal and contractual perspective. The book also provides analysis of project defaults and work-outs giving guidance on how to manage projects when these circumstances arise. The book also contains coverage of dispute resolution in international projects.
