Integrated gas-to-liquids (GTL) projects have the option of using the Residual Pricing Methodology (RPM) under the Gas Transfer Price Regulations to calculate their Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT) liability.

This practical, hands-on, advanced course is aimed at finance, accounting and tax personnel responsible for attending to PRRT compliance obligations in relation to integrated GTL operations. It is also designed for those involved with the economic modelling of such projects. The workshop will be run within a classroom-style setting to facilitate participant interaction and uses practical case studies and practice exercises to illustrate the operation of the RPM.

The session will cover the following areas:

  • Overview of the gas transfer price framework
  • Identifying an integrated GTL project and the relevant participants
  • Application of the RPM to alternative integrated GTL project structures 
  • RPM calculation methodology
  • Cost-plus price calculation
  • Netback price calculation
  • Phase points and phase costs
  • Volume and energy coefficients
  • Augmentation, reduction and annualisation of capital costs
  • Identifying personal costs
  • Modifications for the North West Shelf and onshore projects
  • Interaction between the RPM and PRRT instalment calculations
  • Current issues and some common tricks and traps.

Learning materials will be provided to participants and there will be ample opportunity for questions during the workshop. We look forward to seeing you.
