The energy industry shaped international arbitration and – thanks to resource nationalism, changes in the oil price, shifting geopolitics and febrile sanctions lists - remains one of its biggest users.

The Guide to Energy Arbitrations, published by Global Arbitration Review, provides coherent and comprehensive coverage of the most common, most difficult, and most unusual issues faced by energy firms, from some of the world’s leading authorities. It is edited by J William Rowley QC, Doak Bishop and Gordon Kaiser.

The Third Edition is fully updated and has new content on upstream oil and gas disputes.
