  • Five Years Later, Oil and Gas Company BP Remains in Legal Battle Over Fines

    BP's (BP) stock has plummeted almost 30% since the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which killed 11 people. The company set aside $43.5 billion to deal with the spill. Though five years later, BP is still in a legal battle with the government over just how much it will pay in fines, causing plenty of uncertainty for investors. But analysts say it's not all doom and gloom for BP, which maintains an attractive dividend of $2.40, a far cry from the summer of 2010, when the spill pushed BP to suspend its dividend. Analysts also say the spill forced BP to downsize, which has helped the company stay afloat as the oil industry struggles with low oil prices.

BOOK REVIEW OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS INSTALLATIONS SECURITY An International Perspective By Mikhail Kashubsky ISBN: 978 0 41570 730 5 Informa Law From Routledge www.informa.com ________________________________________________________ OIL AND GAS INSTALLATIONS: A TARGET FOR TERROR AND A LEGAL CHALLENGE An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers We live in an age of terror -- and the terror of attacks on the innocent -- and also the terror of attacks on specific targets vital to the world economy. Particularly vulnerable worldwide are offshore oil and gas installations – hence the need for this timely legal text from Informa Law: ‘Offshore Oil and Gas Installations Security’. A recent addition to Informa’s Marine and Transport Law Library, this is rather a terrific book. Yes, it will be of abiding interest to international and environmental lawyers, but the clarity of the author’s prose style will make it accessible, not to mention fascinating, to everybody and anybody interested in this subject which, according to author Mikhail Kashubsky, has hitherto been surprisingly neglected. ‘The main reason for writing the book,’ says Kashubsky, ‘was to fill a specific gap in the literature and provide a useful resource for anyone interested in security issues pertaining to offshore petroleum installations’. As the self-explanatory title indicates, the book (which started life as a PhD thesis) deals with the increasingly complex issues relating specifically to protecting and maintaining the security of offshore petroleum installations, which include both oil and gas. Writing in the Foreword, marine and shipping expert Dr. Michael White QC of the University of Queensland remarks that the complex legal questions emanating from offshore security issues are international in nature. So it is useful that part of the book’s remit is to deal with the international conventions and the cases that have come before the international courts. In identifying the targets most likely to be attacked, the book explores in detail the regulatory framework and the industry responses to the risks from criminal and/or terrorist violence. The urgency of the topic and the need for a detailed study of it has become apparent in the wake of the alarmingly increase in terrorist attacks. ‘Oil and natural gas,’ says the author, ‘account for over 60 per cent of the world’s energy supply, one third of which comes from the offshore sector.’ Lawyers, as well as risk management professionals and those doing research into this important subject have -- at last, access to a wealth of research resources contained in this one volume. In addition to the copious footnoting, note the selected bibliography and the illuminating appendix of almost -- good grief! -- 50 pages in length containing tables of attacks on offshore installations dating from 1975 to 2014, (although there was a previous incident in 1899). With its detailed table of contents and index, the book is easy to navigate – and there’s a useful and lengthy list of abbreviations and acronyms and a table of conventions. As it summarises the law of the sea as it pertains to offshore zones which are particularly vulnerable, the book will also prove immensely useful for policy makers in government and those professionally involved in the marine and petroleum industries worldwide. Certainly, it should be in every international lawyer’s professional library. The publication date is cited as at 2016.
