The Asia-Pacific region leads the world in exports and imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG). For the last three decades, long-term LNG pricing contracts in Asia have consistently included price review clauses, and pricing disputes arising out of these clauses are becoming more frequent.

Price review arbitrations are high stakes and highly specialised. Small price adjustments can have a significant financial impact in the long term and cases frequently involve jurisdictional hurdles, complex contract interpretation, and technical expert evidence. In this webinar – one of the first dedicated to gas pricing disputes in Asia – experts will discuss … Read More
