This major two-volume work provides a country-by-country analysis of African oil and gas. Divided into north and central Africa (Volume I) and east, west and southern Africa (Volume II), the book details the oil and gas frameworks and the key concerns in the most significant jurisdictions. Topics addressed include the key terms of the petroleum laws, the types of legal arrangement in place (eg, concession agreement, production sharing contract or service agreement), the fiscal terms, the acquisition of acreage, governing law, dispute resolution mechanisms and governmental control. Volume I on north and central Africa includes both traditional petroleum producing countries, such as Libya, Algeria, Angola and Egypt, and more recent areas with significant potential, such as Chad, Morocco and Sudan. In Volume II on east, west and southern Africa, traditional producing countries in the west Africa such as Nigeria and Gabon are joined by frontier areas such as Mozambique, Tanzania, Ghana and Madagascar. Covering more than 40 countries, this book features contributions from a variety of leading experts in the industry, including from ministries of petroleum, national oil companies, international oil companies, law firms and consultancies. This unique new work will provide a wider understanding of oil and gas law, contracts and regulations within the African continent.
Long before "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," Hollywood's version of the Middle Ages had sometimes been laughable. Who can resist chuckling at "The Black Knight" (1954), in which Arthurian warriors ride across a plain complete with telephone poles in the background? Or "The Black Shield of Falworth" (1954), in which Tony Curtis-in his best medieval Bronx accent-utters the immortal line, "Yonda is the castle of my fodda"? These films may not be paragons of historical accuracy, but much of what we know-or think we know-about the Middle Ages has been dictated by what we've seen on the movie screen.
