Across CEE, Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations are of utmost importance for both the legal sector and societies overall. Oil & Gas exploration and production have started over a century ago in countries like Poland and Romania, but the current dependence on a single source and the corresponding issues lead to the importance of the matter in the context of interconnectivity and security of supply. Over the last decades, my colleagues and I were devoted to providing legal assistance to the upstream, midstream, and downstream Oil & Gas sectors across CEE and we are delighted to share our knowledge within this CEELM Comparative Guide. The structure of the Guide is such that it provides the most important legal information structured in a practical way, which allows both focus on a single jurisdiction and cross-referencing and comparisons between the legal approaches in the various jurisdictions.
The CEELM Comparative Guide on Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations is prepared for both investors and legal experts, interested in this field. This is the very first issue of the Guide, but I hope that it will become a tradition for an updated Guide to be issued on an annual or bi-annual basis, as the sector really needs a dynamic platform that will allow the changes to the CEE Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations to the dully reflected and refreshed.
Naturally, the CEELM Comparative Guide on Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations provides just a snapshot of the most important and relevant matters, but I would like to encourage the readers to reach out to the authors in case of any additional questions or need for information.
I would like to use this opportunity to appreciate CEELM’s assistance in taking the lead with the initiative of preparing of the CEELM Comparative Guide on Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations and I am very much looking forward to our further collaborations.
Enjoy the very first issue of the CEELM Comparative Guide on Oil & Gas Laws and Regulations in CEE!
