Over the last 10 years, the oil and gas industry has experienced terrific highs and terrifying lows. The search for increasingly scarce energy resources has brought new players to the field competing on development projects with the well-known cast of regulars. Political tensions and internal state agendas have further complicated the exploration, development, transportation and marketing of these natural resources, and have contributed to the volatility of oil and gas prices. Oil and gas are increasingly used as bargaining chips between nations, and are even the subject of hostilities between countries. As a result of these competing pressures and interests, disputes between the major players and sovereign nations continue to arise before arbitral institutions.
This seminar will cover current topics in oil and gas international arbitrations including price revisions, the political and economic context of these disputes, and the key considerations in calculating damages. It will conclude with a round table discussion by in-house counsel on effectively managing and winning international arbitrations in the oil and gas sector.
Who should attend? In-house counsel of oil and gas companies, independent practitioners and law firms who represent/advise parties from the oil and gas sector, commercial, economic and technical personnel of oil and gas companies, senior officers from government departments and ministries, arbitrators and mediators interested in knowing more about oil and gas disputes, advisors and consultants in the oil and gas business, and academics and members of the local and international business community interested in, and affected by, current developments and best practice in the oil and gas business.
Attendance at this program will satisfy annual Arbitrator Continuing Education (ACE) requirements for AAA Arbitrators.
