The article gives a review of the dispute resolution mechanisms in unitization of cross-border hydrocarbon fields stipulated by the Treaty between the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Norway Concerning Maritime Delimitation and Cooperation in the Barents Sea and the Arctic Ocean of 2010, with indication of semantic differences between the text of the Treaty in the Russian and Norwegian languages.
