Offshore Petroleum Gets a Full and Timely Review
This book is a product of the author's research concerned with a reassessment of the 'bargain with the state', i.e. a reassessment of the rationale and features of host country involvement in the management of offshore petroleum resources, as offshore fields have matured and as social and environmental circumstances have changed over the years. The subject is one of ever-increasing complexity.
The book provides a comprehensive, historical and timely review of the offshore petroleum regimes of three jurisdictions: Australia, Norway and the United Kingdom.
