International Arbitration Tribunal Rules ConocoPhillips is Owed $2.04 Billion in its Dispute with PDVSA
ConocoPhillips announced that it is owed $2.04 billion from Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) and two of its subsidiaries as a result of the decision of an international arbitration tribunal constituted under the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). The ruling arises out of ConocoPhillips’ contracts with those entities and is in response to the expropriation of ConocoPhillips’ investments in the Hamaca and Petrozuata heavy crude oil projects in Venezuela in 2007 and other pre-expropriation fiscal measures. PDVSA is Venezuela’s state-owned oil company.

“We are pleased with the ICC tribunal’s decision,” said Janet Langford Carrig, senior vice president, Legal, general counsel and corporate secretary of ConocoPhillips. “The ruling upholds the contractual protections to which ConocoPhillips is entitled under the applicable agreements and acknowledges PDVSA’s independent contractual liability arising from the government of Venezuela’s unlawful and uncompensated expropriation of ConocoPhillips’ investments.”

The ICC arbitration award is final and binding upon the parties. ConocoPhillips will pursue enforcement and seek financial recovery of its award to the full extent of the law.

The ICC arbitration is a separate and independent legal action from ConocoPhillips’ investment treaty arbitration against the government of Venezuela, which is pending before a tribunal under the auspices of the World Bank's International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). The ICSID tribunal has ruled that Venezuela’s expropriation of ConocoPhillips’ investments violated international law, and proceedings are currently ongoing to determine the amount of compensation owed to ConocoPhillips.
