Open to all to read and to contribute
OGEL has become the hub of a global professional and academic network. We therefore invite all those with an oil-gas-energy law and regulation interest to contribute. In addition to full length articles, we are looking for short comments on recent developments of broad interest. We would like where possible such comments to be backed-up by provision of in-depth notes and articles and primary legal and regulatory materials. Please contact us if you want to participate in this global network: we are ready to publish contributions with name, photo, and brief biographical description - but we will also accept anonymous ones.
