Abstract

In LG Caltex Gas Co Ltd and Contigroup Companies Inc v China National Petroleum Co and China Petroleum Technology and Development Corporation, January 2001, unreported, Aikens J considered the almost intractable problems of jurisdiction which arise where parties apparently agree to ·confer ad hoe power on an arbitrator to determine a jurisdictional issue, and he does so. Is it possible to raise jurisdictional challenges to the making of the award and, if not, can a challenge be made to the content of the award? These and other preliminary issues were considered in Caltex.
