Off-Take Contracts for Project Finance Investors, Developers, and Lenders


This practice note discusses off-take contracts used in project finance transactions. Most projects are underpinned by a complex web of contractual relationships between all the parties involved in the project (such as the project company, equity investors, lenders, contractors, subcontractors, off-takers, and suppliers). These documents are generally referred to as the project documents. In projects involving the production or exploitation of a product (such as an energy power project or a mine project), the off-take contracts or off-take agreement are some of the principal project documents.
