18jaanallday19allday5th ITA-IEL-ICC Joint Conference on International Energy ArbitrationHouston, Texas, • English


The ICC International Court of Arbitration (ICC) is co-organizing along with the Institute for Transnational Arbitration (ITA) and the Institute for Energy Law (IEL) of the Centre for American and International Law the 5th edition of their joint conference on international arbitration in the energy sector, being held on 18-19 January 2018. Procedural issues such as arbitrator selection and emergency arbitrators will be explored, and the new era of disputes in the Mexican energy industry examined.

ICC, ITA, and IEL 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.  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; 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.

The conference is 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.

The programme will be led by co-chairs Mimi M. Lee (Chevron Upstream), Sylvia Noury (Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP) and James L. Loftis (Vinson & Elkins LLP).

Who should attend?

Arbitrators, legal practitioners, in-house counsel, and academics who would like to learn more about developments in international energy arbitration.
