Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The book brings together academic and practicing lawyers to consider the key legal issues facing the United Kingdom as it becomes a progressively more mature hydrocarbon province.
Now in its second edition, the book considers and analyses the petroleum licence and fiscal regime. It also discusses the offshore oil industry’s dedicated regulatory regime (health and safety and environmental regulation are both considered, alongside the decommissioning regime on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf) as well as considering the key commercial and contractual issues facing the industry after forty years of oil and gas production on the UKCS.
