Please join us for the next webinar in our International Arbitration series for 2020. Our presenters will take a deep dive into three recent developments affecting the crucial Joint Operating Agreement (“JOA”). The first issue concerns the recent English Court of Appeal decision in Spirit Energy Resources Limited & ORS v. Marathon Oil UK LLC,  EWCA 11, involving the operator’s right to be held harmless from unexpected, unbudgeted cost. The second issue involves the recent English High Court decision in TAQA Bratani Limited & Ors v RockRose UKCS8 LLC  EWHC 58 (Comm), concerning operator removal and the relevance of the Braganza doctrine. The final issue concerns a recent decision of an ICC tribunal involving the enforceability of a JOA’s default and forfeiture provisions under the Brazilian Civil Code.
