The focus of the Contract Management Division (CMD) is on the creation and management of all contracts in terms of reporting and compliance. All stakeholder contract management is dealt with in this Division to ensure that there is a single point of contact and expert assigned to each of the major operators. This Division brings a combination of business and technical multi-disciplinary teaming and skills. Staff of the CMD represent single points of contact for stakeholder management. Their role involves management of all contracts - cost recovery, cost tracking, cost benchmarking, data confidentiality, calculation of profits, royalties and cost streams and marketing arrangements.
Appraisal of exploration and development programmes are conducted within the division. CMD officers interface with LNG and Gas Exports Division and Commercial Evaluation Division. They are responsible for administration of technical aspects of contracts e.g., drilling and work programmes. Management of Production Sharing Contracts and Exploration and Production licence management with regards to compliance also fall under the responsibilities of the CMD.
