Production-sharing contracts or concessions
A production-sharing contract is a contractual arrangement between the holders of a resource, typically a country’s government, and a resource extraction company, concerning how much oil or gas each party would receive. The company bears the mineral and financial risk of the initiative. It explores, develops and, if successful, manages production. Costs are recovered through the sale of oil or gas and what is left over is split depending on the terms of the contract.
