On June 1, 2018, the heirs of the late Sheikhs Abdullah Al-Solaiman AlHamdan and Khalid Abu Al-Waleed Al-Oarqani ("Claimants") petitioned to confirm and enforce an $18 billion arbitral award against Chevron entities before the Northern District of California and the Southern District of Texas. The award was issued under the auspices of the illegitimate "International Arbitration Centre" ("IAC") in Cairo, Egypt.

Both enforcement petitions were dismissed.
