production sharing agreement

production sharing agreement
production sharing agreement (PSA)
USA
An agreement between a government and a company in which the government awards to the company the right to extract and develop a natural resource (for example, mineral ore or oil). Under a PSA, the company bears the financial risk of exploring and extracting the resource. If no oil or mineral ore is found, the company receives no compensation for any work it may have done or costs it may have incurred. If the company is successful in extracting the resource, it is entitled to recoup its capital and operational expenditures. Once these costs are recouped, any profit is shared between the government and the company at a pre-agreed percentage.
