Welcome to the 2020 edition of the CMS Annual Review of developments in English oil and gas law, featuring commentary and analysis on the latest developments in English oil and gas law.
This year’s edition of the Annual Review is published against a very different background to last year. That said, impressively, the courts and many arbitral tribunals have continued to hear cases and deliver judgments and awards at a rate no different to pre-crisis levels. We have also seen interesting oil and gas court decisions and arbitral awards relating to issues as diverse as taxation of interest payable on petroleum revenue tax repayments, operator’s reimbursement under joint operating agreements and the sale and purchase of crude oil and oil products. Outside the oil and gas sector there have also been some interesting decisions and awards that illuminate issues relevant to oil and gas contracting – such as those relating to construction or engineering contracts.
