Energy, Oil & Gas

Energy, Oil & Gas is a highly specialized industry with a wide range of matters, which often involve large amounts in dispute. Parties benefit from CPR’s experienced case managers and specialized neutrals with understanding of the subject matter, saving the time and cost in educating the neutral as to key issues relevant to their dispute.

CPR's Dispute Resolution Services have handled a wide range of disputes arising out of the Energy, Oil and Gas industry: disputes in connection with power purchase agreements, coal supply agreements, energy services agreements, oil & gas royalties and sales, operating and development agreements, pipelines, JOVS, and investment disputes involving energy, among others.  We understand the nuances and complexities of the industry and can anticipate the needs of the parties.  Parties to an energy dispute can come to DRS for their arbitration and mediation needs, for neutral appointment or other services such as deal facilitation and dispute resolution boards. 


The Energy, Oil & Gas Panel of Neutrals is a blue-ribbon international panel including former General Counsel and other energy neutrals who are experts in resolving complex energy disputes including those involving alternative energy sources, fossil fuels, electrical, gas and nuclear specialties and can conduct proceedings in 10 different languages.
