Gas Contract Arbitration
Brattle experts have provided economic analysis in arbitrations relating to the price reset provisions typically found in long-term gas contracts. We advise on the economic logic of the reset provisions, as well as wider gas market developments, to recommend the scope of discovery requests and determine the relevance of discovered information. We have analysed the economic relevance to contract price of discovered data, such as terms in comparable gas supply contracts governing flexibility, reliability, delivery points, and price escalation. Our team has provided expert testimony on behalf of producers and purchasers in a dozen arbitrations in both Eastern and Western Australian markets.
