CEPMLP co-sponsorship of the 5th Annual Conference on International Energy Arbitration

Presented by The Institute for Transnational Arbitration and The Institute for Energy Law of The Center for American and International Law and The ICC International Court of Arbitration.

Co-Sponsored by the Houston International Arbitration Club, Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law, and Business at The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Dundee Centre for Energy, Petroleum & Mineral Law & Policy.

Now the definitive annual program on international arbitration in the energy sector, the ITA, IEL and ICC join again this year to bring speakers from around the globe and across the industry to focus on the key issues in this practice – from a keynote address on the role of geopolitics in the genesis of disputes in the sector, through the uncertainty of cross-border resource development involving undelimited maritime boundaries to the increasing sophistication of “resource nationalism” in emerging markets. Procedural issues such as arbitrator selection and emergency arbitrators will be explored, and the new era of disputes in the Mexican energy industry examined. The program includes three ever-popular features: the Corporate Counsel Roundtable, tackling practical topics such as the challenging nature of the ‘bargain’ with host governments in a low-price environment, this year’s luncheon interview with David R. Haigh, Q.C., one of the deans of the practice, and all you need to know about last year’s energy disputes: the Year in Review.
