  • Arbitration processes in the offshore oil and gas sector

    Studies show that international arbitration and mediation is considered amongst the more common forms of dispute resolution for cross border maritime and offshore oil and gas disputes.   Disputes often take up valuable time, money and resources, affecting day-to-day practices and bottom lines.

    It is therefore logical that specialised arbitration and mediation provides higher value for complex cases.  Approaching a dispute through court litigation is not the only way to resolve or enforce verdicts.  Arbitration offers a less formal, yet more efficient and flexible method to addressing a dispute, particularly when parties wish to keep their disagreement out of the public arena, therefore saving reputation, time and cost.

    To demonstrate the value of the various alternative dispute resolution approaches, this panel will address the advantages of the arbitration processes available in the maritime and offshore oil and gas sector within the region, providing industry stakeholders with a clear understanding of procedures supporting arbitration and mediation and closing disputes outside of court litigation.
