Gas and LNG Price Arbitrations – A Practical Handbook, 2nd edition (2020) – The Arbitrators’ Role

Rahul Donde and Laurent Lévy have co-authored the chapter entitled “The Arbitrators’ Role” in the 2nd edition of Gas and LNG Price Arbitrations – A Practical Handbook (J. Freeman & M. Levy QC, Eds), just published by Globe Law & Business.


In their chapter, the authors use anonymized real-life examples to provide practical insights on the arbitrators’ role in a gas pricing arbitration, with particular attention given to issues such as compliance with formal requirements, consideration of economic evidence and the potential knock-on effects of arbitral determinations among others.


This 2nd edition of the Handbook covers the various practical aspects of international gas pricing disputes, with contributions from leading specialist international arbitration practitioners and arbitrators, in-house counsel, and industry experts. It considers the various stages of a gas pricing dispute, from drafting the clause to triggering a review, all the way through the various steps in the arbitral process. It also builds on the first edition, with insights into more substantive topics such as hub indexation, the impact on pricing of non-price terms such as destination flexibility, and the differences between gas and LNG price reviews.Despite the large number of high-value disputes in this area, the Handbook is one of the very few publications to draw together the various strands of gas pricing disputes into one book. It is therefore an invaluable guide for practitioners, in-house counsel and anyone else with an interest in this area.
