Looking for Guest Editors OGEL special issue on Risks and Responses to Risk in the Energy Sector
26 March 2012
Update April 16th: we've found two editors for the special on Risks and Responses to Risk in the Energy Sector.
The risks that energy companies face have grown in many areas over the last years and decades. For upstream oil and gas companies, developments in international anti-bribery frameworks and their enforcement, EHS, environmental impact of upstream operations, moving operations deeper offshore, to new frontier areas and the end of "easy oil" have all increased the financial and legal risks inherent in these operations. For downstream companies, power or gas utilities, the new risks stemming from privatisation and market liberalisation have caused a fundamental change in the way downstream utilities work and interact with each other. Regulatory transitions in many areas create risk and cause uncertainty, increased regulatory and antitrust scrutiny of various transactions, are just examples of these risks.
OGEL is currently planning a Special Issue on risks and responses to risks in the energy sector. For this, we are looking for a Guest Editor with understanding and experience in risk mitigation in the energy sector and willingness to lead the special of about 10-15 papers.
Submissions of material are hereby invited for inclusion in the special issue. Potential topics related to this special could be:
- Regulatory risk in upstream operations
- Regulatory risk in downstream markets
- Investment stability and changing regulation
- International fight against corruption
- International antitrust enforcement
- Border Disputes
- Environmental risks
- Geopolitical risks
- Investment risks
