This note generally focuses on contracts for the supply of raw materials governed by English legislation (raw or processed hydrocarbons, minerals, electricity or others) and, in particular, contracts to finance the underlying production infrastructure. While we focus on a buyer`s take-pay obligations, much of the bill is equally relevant to all of the seller`s “delivery or payment” obligations that is reflected.

4.1.3. The correlation between the seller`s claim against the buyer and the seller`s complaint against him Apart from the oil and gas context, contractual terms are often “taken or paid” by the courts as unenforceable penalties. The courts consider them to be “liquidated compensation clauses,” which must be based on an appropriate reconciliation of the actual harm suffered by one party as a result of the other party`s infringement. “Take or pay” generally does not meet this standard. In this case, both parties benefit from the rule to be taken or paid. Company A receives only the amount of gas it needs from Company C, at a total cost less than it would have paid; Company B receives the criminal award from Company A instead of earning nothing if Company A simply switches suppliers without the take-or-pay scheme. This is what a long-term take-pay contract does for the parties: the provision of section 24 is an imperative right under the objective it has set. Gas sales contracts should adopt the legal requirements for establishing obligations under the “Take-or Pay” clauses and establish specific conditions for the use of the receivables under this clause. In any event, these agreements and claims must not lead to a violation of the parameters of Article 24.
Unlike take-or-pay, a “demand contract” does not have a minimum amount of contract. Instead, a requirement contract requires the buyer to withdraw all the demand for a commodity from the seller. Indeed, the seller takes the buyer`s market risk, but usually for a higher commodity price, in order to reflect the increased risk.
