Table of Contents - Volume 3, issue #01, published 1 March 2005
OGEL, the global Oil-Gas-Energy Law Intelligence service. OGEL focuses on recent developments in the area of oil-gas-energy law, regulation, treaties, judicial and arbitral cases, voluntary guidelines, tax and contracting, including the oil-gas-energy geopolitics. -- http://www.gasandoil.com/ogel/
Special Feature: Production Sharing Contracts 
We are pleased that we are able to focus with this first OGEL issue in 2005 on production-sharing contracts. Production-sharing contracts now dominate the world of upstream exploration and development for oil and gas, with some exceptions in Europe, in the US and in some Latin American countries which have during their privatisation period in the 1990s re-introduced mineral concessions on the Chilean model. We are grateful in particular to Philip Weems, of King & Spalding in Houston, and his competent team for helping to assemble an impressive number of relevant studies and comments on the modern use of production-sharing contracts.
