The Guide to Energy Arbitrations now launched

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

The Guide to Energy Arbitrations has just been launched by GAR, a title edited by William Rowley QC, an arbitrator within 20 Essex Street and an expert in the energy sector.

The Global Arbitration Review has released the title, with Rowley as General Editor alongside Doak Bishop and Gordon Kaiser. William Rowley QC’s extensive experience has helped create a title which is likely to be a source book for all involved in such disputes. Renowned academics, businessmen and practitioners in the field have contributed across eight sections, described by Richard Hill, general counsel of Shell, as “a stellar cast of the world’s leading experts.” The topics explored include: Investor-State Disputes in the Energy Industry; Construction of Major Capital Projects; Disputes Involving Joint Ventures and Joint Operating; Gas Supply and LNG Arbitrations; Disputes Involving Regulated Utilities; Procedural Issues in Energy Arbitrations.

The motivation behind the publication is the growing number of disputes within the energy sector over the last 20 years. With so many multi-faceted and complex disputes, a comprehensive guide was required. William Rowley QC describes the energy business as ‘the poster boy of arbitral globalisation’ as often it involves enormously complex, capital-intensive international deals and projects, often with a background of different cultures or political instability.

Andrew Clarke, ExxonMobil International Limited, states in his foreword: “Greater certainty over the possible outcomes where disputes arise, combined with improved efficiency and effectiveness in the process, would encourage the parties to consider their positions more carefully and may reduce the frequency of formal proceedings. In this regard, academic analysis of such current issues will prove invaluable.”

 

Copies of the guide may be purchased in the GAR shop. The guide is set to be updated next for 2017.
