Analyses and critiques the key regulatory and commercial dimensions of the oil and gas industryIn recent years, a great deal has changed in the oil and gas industry, from legal and regulatory change to falling oil prices. The contemporary oil and gas industry is now intensely focussed on cost-saving and the UK has radical redrawn its revenue-raising expectations.This updated third edition of 'UK Oil and Gas Law' has been published in two volumes: this volume focuses on resource management and regulatory law, while the other deals with commercial and contract law issues.
