This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Energy Law, Business, Regulation & Policy at the International Hellenic University. This dissertation is scrutinizing the key legal commercial components of the LNG transactions via the analysis of the possible terms, which may exist in the context in the LNG Sale and Purchase Agreement, the LNG trading agreements with attention on the main model charterparties, the “ShellLNGTime1” and the “GIIGNL charterparty”, and the Model Agreement for the use of the LNG Facility of Revithoussa located in the region of Greece. In parallel, the analysis continued on the non - contractual liabilities that may occur by the environmental behavior of the parties to those agreements. In the end matters concerning the resolution of disputes deriving from the execution of the above contracts have been dully scrutinized. More particular, this paper investigated the necessity of the analytical drafting of the LNG Sale and Purchase Agreements and their interfacing with the charterparties as those were analyzed in the respective chapter. The chapter concerning the shipping agreements, deepened on the key contractual terms of the above mentioned model charterparties. The next chapter focused on the analysis of the Greek, EU and International legal framework concerning the non - contractual liability deriving from the environmental pollution and downgrading and the last chapter focused mainly on the most appropriate way of solving possible disputes between the parties.
