Pages: 400
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Petroleum law and policy in the UK to date has focused on the oil and gas resources in the North Sea, and their regulation over the last fifty years. However, a new source of petroleum in the UK is emerging - that of the unconventional petroleum resource of shale gas. This book will be a thematic book considering the shale gas law and regulation. Whilst there will be a focus on the UK, the book will place it within a wider global context. Rather than a theoretical focus, the book aims to have a practical, applicable focus, so that the reader can apply the legal principles and policies to their jurisdiction. It will focus on five major themes: overview and introduction to shale gas activities; shale gas economics and energy security; access to shale gas resources; shale gas law and regulation; and the future of shale gas.
