Join us for short presentations and a panel discussion on dispute settlement in the oil and gas industry with a focus on international arbitration and its future in international oil and gas disputes.

This webinar is intended for young African practitioners in the oil and gas sector. It is designed to outline key issues, trends and the future of disputes in the sector. It will also enlighten practitioners on the common causes and effects of disputes and highlight expectations from the passage of Nigeria’s Petroleum Industry Bill which had been waiting in the wings for about 20 years.
