Fatma Salah, 'Extension of Petroleum Arbitration Agreements to Non-signatories in Egypt' (2013) 30 Journal of International Arbitration, Issue 1, pp. 71–79


Given the interconnected players in the oil and gas industry, the article examines the possibility of extending an arbitration agreement concluded between one company and a third party to bind its controlling parties. The article begins with an overview of the contractual structure of oil and gas projects in Egypt. It then moves on to analyse the legal nature of joint venture companies established for carrying out exploration and development operations. Finally, the article discusses the possibility of piercing the corporate veil of the company under Egyptian law.
