In this age of diminishing natural resources, the worldâ€™s petroleum reserves are increasingly hotly contested. As such, the oil and gas sector gives rise to more and more high value international disputes - whether at a State-to-State level, at a State/NOC-to-IOC level or at an IOC-to-IOC level. These disputes come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, including as regards disputed boundaries, disputed investor rights and disputed performance of petroleum agreements.
This Masterclass will examine how these disputes arise, how they may affect petroleum operations and how they may be satisfactorily resolved before international courts and arbitral tribunals.
In the light of the previous decisions of such third party adjudicatory bodies, this Masterclass will also look at how certain key provisions of upstream petroleum agreements may be most effectively drafted in the future.
This masterclass is following from the huge success of SMi's Legal Fundamentals to do Business in Nigeria masterclass. Due to the difficulty of operating in Asia and the overall lack of knowledge, this CPD accredited event will offer value to all in attendance, allowing everyone to operate in this region to the maximum.
