ConocoPhillips Subsidiary Attains Favorable Decision in International Arbitration Filed Against Ecuador

Print Share

Dec 31, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- ConocoPhillips announced that its subsidiary, Burlington Resources Inc., has received a favorable decision in the international arbitration filed against Ecuador.

According to a release, the Tribunal, constituted under the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), ruled that Ecuador unlawfully expropriated the company's significant oil investments in Blocks 7 and 21, in violation of the U.S.-Ecuador bilateral investment treaty.

The Tribunal also found that Burlington's investment, expropriated by Ecuador, included the contractual right to be indemnified for the effects of the Windfall Profits Tax (Law 42).

"This decision sends a message that contracts must be honored and governments cannot expropriate investments without compensation," said Janet Kelly, SVP, Legal and General Counsel. "The ruling confirms that Ecuador's actions were not in accordance with international law."

While this ruling is an essential step in the process, the Tribunal has not yet issued a decision on damages. An additional arbitration phase will take place to determine the amount of compensation owed to Burlington for Ecuador's actions.
