About the Seminar:

The talk will commence with a brief examination of the various participants in the oil and gas chain, the kind of contracts and governing laws in use, and the types of arbitration seen in the upstream, midstream and downstream parts of the chain. From his experience of arbitrations relating to the construction of midstream (extraction and processing) and downstream (refining) facilities, Shourav will then examine the issues that regularly arise in such arbitrations, relating both to substantive law (such as decision-making in joint ventures, ground and climatic conditions, delay and cost overrun, completion, warranty provisions, loss of production claims and limitation of liability) and arbitration procedure (such as multi-tier dispute resolution provisions, protective measures, disclosure requests and expert witness evidence).

The talk will close with a discussion of opportunities in this area for arbitration practitioners in Singapore, and will be followed by a Q&A session and interactive discussion with participants.
