Petroleum Law in Australia examines the law and policy related to the exploration and production of petroleum. This clear and concise text by Tina Hunter and John Chandler considers both offshore and onshore petroleum activities. The focus of the text is on offshore petroleum, which reflects the predominance of this type of activity in Australia.

Petroleum Law in Australia explains the basis of petroleum regulation, explorings, critical areas for exploration and development, and their associated legal issues. These include: the relationship between the Commonwealth and states and territories; the regulatory structure; licensing and permitting; commercial arrangements between explorers and producers; environmental regulation; and safety regulation. Hunter and Chandler also consider the emerging area of unconventional petroleum onshore, especially coal seam shale gas.

Hunter and Chandler introduce the reader to the regulation of petroleum exploration and production, including its special terminology, commercial and legal background. This text provides a real insight into the legal and policy ramifications in Australia.
