The programme provides students with the opportunity to examine and critically assess key legal issues in the oil and gas sector both in the UK and in other leading jurisdictions.
Courses offered cover licensing and other methods of state control of hydrocarbon resources, commercial contracting, regulation of the oil and gas industry, principles of environmental law and maritime planning. The intention is that by the end of the programme students will have developed the analytical skills and knowledge to provide them with a firm foundation for work in this sector.
