Mediation in the Oil and Gas Industry


The current state of the price of oil has led to a tightening of belts across the Oil and Gas industry.  Companies tied to upstream, midstream and downstream ventures face unique challenges, hoping to operate in cost-savings mode and avoid the cost of lengthy, complex litigation.  Extra stress is now present for a wide range of contractual disputes, including lease agreements, construction and equipment agreements; joint ventures and joint operating agreements; M&A agreements; gas sales contracts, drilling contracts, and more.  This environment has led to a sizeable and noticeable shift in the role mediation plays in the Oil & Gas industry.  Join a panel of JAMS neutrals, who specialize in Oil & Gas disputes, for an update on mediation trends in the industry plus future prognostications.  Special attention will also be paid to legacy litigation, international mediation and the potential increased role mediation may play in workouts, refinancing and Chapter 11 matters.
