The international scope of energy transactions commonly leads parties to incorporate arbitration as their method of dispute resolution. When the arbitration concludes, the award does not always lead to final resolution. The successful party may need to pursue confirmation of the award, which often leads to an attempt to confirm it in U.S. courts. A party seeking confirmation of a foreign arbitration award, however, may encounter obstacles and delays, notwithstanding public policy favoring enforcement of arbitration awards.
