Whenever two or more labour owners decide to share the risk of drilling, development or operations related to oil and gas extraction, they enter into what the industry calls a Joint Venture Agreement or simply an enterprise agreement. The JOAjoint Enterprise Agreement generally provides that one of the parties operates as an operator of the parties in the common territory covered by the JOAjoint Enterprise Agreement. In addition, the operation for which the JOAjoint operating agreement was concluded (drilling a well) is defined and how costs and revenues are distributed, assessed and accounted for. In addition, it provides for the rights of each party to the production received and determines how leases are acquired, maintained, transferred and sold. Tender agreements generally concern border or offshore areas where unleased public sector oil and gas interests may become desirable for a group of companies that share the high costs of auctioning and wish to offer them as a group. The group may have been created as a result of joint exploration and/or development activities, or it may simply be a case in which a financial party wishes to propose with an industrial partner or a more competent partner. These agreements can be extremely complex in terms of the methodology used to determine bids, with whom and when, as well as in the preparation of a competitive leasing sale. Post-sale participation formulas can also be complex. Federal and regional cartel and other collusion sanctions laws continue to refine procedures. Most JOAs expect the operator not to benefit from common share management. Except in an emergency, it must obtain permission from other parties (non-operators) to spend money on the joint account. In addition, no party, except in some limited cases, can prevent another party from conducting operations that it wishes to conduct at its own expense, risks and costs. In these cases, when less than all parties to the JOAjoint Enterprise Agreement execute a project alone and, where production comes from these isolated costs or actions alone, the parties that accept the project can claim 100% of the non-consequential part`s share of the production, plus a significant additional percentage, as a rule, by several hundred percentage points depending on the risks of the project.

The percentage is There are a variety of other special agreements that are used in the exploration and development of oil and gas. These agreements or companies are the result of situations in which two or more parties pool their shared or undivided interests in order to share the costs and risks of an exploration or development, or both. In general, geological, seismic and/or oil studies, surveys or evaluations are necessary for agreements.
