Specific attention is given to the critical aspect of allocation of risk for protection and contract performance as it will influence the negotiating positions of the parties and the ultimate commercial outcome. Issues covered include: contract terms, pricing, method of payment, quality control, penalties, title and risk management, and transportation of coal.
