Subject outline

International Energy Law examines the law and policy framework and the typical contract agreements used between host governments and foreign investors to develop host government petroleum resources. Topics include: concession (royalty/tax) agreements, production-sharing agreements, risk service contracts, the model international Joint Operating Agreement, and best practices in social/environment issues (seeking to avoid the "petro-curse" and achieve sustainable development). The subject includes an overview of future demand and supply trends in energy, in light of geopolitics and global warming.
