  • Working with Deals Desk personnel to ensure any incurred costs agreed by Trade Finance are allocated correctly to the separately maintained deal Profit & Loss accounts.

To fully master the role takes years of training as it requires an in-depth knowledge of every element of physical trading, the counterparties we trade with, and any regional-specific issues regarding security and risk. It is essential to maintain a flow of communication with all key partners as deal specifics can change hour by hour.

Strong technical skills

Compared to other infrastructure-intensive sectors such as power and utilities, limited recourse and non-recourse project finance are less widely used for upstream oil and gas. Upstream oil and gas are capable of but don’t always lend themselves to being project financed. This is because project finance lenders look for stability, and future revenue streams are typically less stable and predictable for oil and gas projects than for large infrastructure or utility projects, which may have regulated or inflation-linked returns.

Oil and gas projects can face substantial logistical, infrastructural, and social issues and the industry’s record of accomplishment of completing projects on time and on a budget is not necessarily favorable. The strength of the security package and practicalities of enforcing this security is a key concern for lenders, as stepping into a partly developed project is rarely, if ever, an attractive proposition.

Other factors Bayrock Services Ltd will weigh up when deciding whether to finance an oil and gas development include:

  • The quality of the resources and reserves
  • The technical complexity of the project
  • The record of accomplishment of the management team
  • The likelihood of cost overruns and delays in achieving commercial production; and
  • The political and fiscal stability of the project’s host authority

Global Oil & Gas Trade Finance Program

Trade finance helps settle the conflicting needs of the exporter and the importer. An exporter needs to mitigate the payment risk from the importer, and it would be in their benefit to accelerate the receivables. On the other hand, the importer wants to mitigate the supply risk from the exporter, and it would be in their benefit to receive extended credit on their payment. The function of trade finance is to act as a third party to remove the payment risk and the supply risk, whilst providing the exporter with accelerated receivables and the importer with extended credit.

Managing trade risks

Trade finance is used when buyers and sellers require financing to assist them with the trade cycle funding gap. Buyers and sellers also can also choose to use trade finance as a form of risk mitigation. For this to be effective the financier requires:


–          Control of the use of funds, control of the goods, and the source of repayment

–          Visibility and monitoring over the trade cycle through the transaction

–          Security over the goods and receivables
