Conference Description:

DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION IN THE OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY
- How to manage contractual and political risk and what to expect when things go wrong
NOVOTEL SINGAPORE CLARKE QUAY, SINGAPORE
25 27 SEPTEMBER 2013

Lawyers and managers typically focus on how their rights are described in a contract or in a piece of legislation. Little attention is paid to who will decide what is the content of such rights, how that decision will be adopted and whether those rights can be enforced. Contracts and projects related to the oil and gas industry are generally complex in nature, involve large sums of money and are politically sensitive. For that reason, not being prepared for the worst can have very negative consequences. Responsible managers and lawyers should be aware of what carrots and sticks can be put in place in order to minimize the risk of a disruption in the cooperation between the parties to a project and to optimize the effectiveness of relevant rights.

The three day course will cover practical and theoretical issues related to international dispute resolution in the oil and gas industry. The course is designed for lawyers and non lawyers from the private and the public sector who are willing to gain command and a better understanding of the techniques and the legal tools that are increasingly used to manage contractual (i.e. breach of contract) and political risk (nationalizations, forced renegotiations of contracts and regulatory changes).
