Liability and Compensation for Transboundary Petroleum Damage from Offshore Installations

Petroleum is a commodity that will not disappear in the distant future. This session focuses on one specific risk of exploring and producing petroleum offshore, namely a petroleum spill. Offshore petroleum spills can cause severe damage to people, property, the environment, and communities. Who pays for that? The question becomes more complicated when an oil company causes an oil spill in one country and the damage is inflicted in the neighboring country. How is transboundary petroleum damage treated in the law and how can the situation be improved?
