Oil and Gas projects as are very complicated. A wide range of risks are included in oil and gas projects and contracts. Different aspects of risks can be addressed in a risk management process which assessment, efficient distribution and allocation of contractual risks are of a high importance. Many researches have studied the Project Risk Management in oil and gas industries with focus on legal and contractual risks aiming to reach to an optimal risk distribution which does not necessarily mean to have a complete contract. In this article with the goal of reviewing contractual risk allocation in Usance finance contracts, a thorough study has been done on related researches and then a complete review has been done on different contracts in Downstream petrochemical projects. Concentration on used risk management mechanisms in both cases and related risks shows severe issues and bugs in both contracts.
