Oil and Gas Exploration Contracts provides a clause-by-clause review of the commercial agreements used in worldwide gas and oil exploration, and provides practical advice on the nature, use and terms of the contracts, enabling practitioners to advise on any stage of the exploration process. The new edition covers exploration joint venture agreements like joint bidding and joint study agreements, and includes coverage on drilling contracts, rig sharing agreements and rig assignments.

It analyses agreements for the sale and purchase of exploration and production assets, and can be used in relation to any offshore exploration area worldwide. Anthony Jennings is a practitioner with wide experience working in this field, and he has written the book from a practical perspective, offering a valuable insight into the nature, purpose and consequences for each contract.
