Managing Risk in a Dynamic Legal and Regulatory Environment
'… well-written, scholarly collection of contributed chapters brimming with practical and intellectual insight; and likely to be of enduring value… this book will be an important source of guidance and clarification for energy policy-makers around the world at a time when the distinction between energy law and policy has never been more blurred.' -Journal of Energy andamp; Natural Resources Law
This volume examines energy security in a privatized, liberalized, and increasingly global energy market, in which the concept of sustainability has developed together with a higher awareness of environmental issues, but where the potential for supply disruptions, price fluctuation, and threats to infrastructure safety must also be considered. Chapters offer a variety of international, regional, and national approaches to energy security, providing economic and historical context to the energy concerns of particular nations, followed by a detailed analysis of the legal provisions relating to the main energy sectors. The volume also provides environmental and geopolitical perspectives, together with a conclusion forecasting future trends in the legal regulation of energy security.Readership: Commercial law practitioners, policymakers in government departments, corporations in the energy sector (oil and gas, coal, electricity), consultants providing legal, economic and commercial advice to the energy sector.
