Energy and Commodity Arbitrations

August 27, 2020

Christian Jeffery contributed a chapter on “Energy and Commodity Arbitrations” in The International Arbitration Review​. Projects in energy and extractive commodity sectors are often characterised by large capital costs, long lead times from project conception to execution, and substantial risks when all does not go to plan. Against this background, the factual and analytical aspects of disputes in the energy and commodity sectors can pose unique challenges to those in the arbitration community.

This chapter examines a number of such issues that have been affected by recent trends and developments in underlying markets, highlighting challenges that face experts, legal teams and tribunals operating in these areas.
