Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo 2016 Boston College Law School

Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

The West African nations of Ghana and Côte D’Ivoire are deeply entrenched in a legal battle over where in the Atlantic Ocean to draw the maritime boundary between them. Further complicating the conflict is the presence of significant quantities of offshore petroleum in the disputed area. In an interim order issued on April 25, 2015, a Special Chamber of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea ruled that Ghana may proceed with existing oil-related activity but must take all steps necessary to prevent new drilling, ensure that no information derived from oil exploration be used to the ...

Protection Of The Marine Environment Under International Law And Kuwaiti Criminal Law, Yousef H. Almutairi

Dissertations & Theses

The marine environment has unique characteristics that distinguish it from other elements of nature. Since seas and oceans cover more than two-thirds of the earth, they play a vital role in achieving biological and climatic balance on the planet. The marine environment also plays an important role in human life, since it has plenty of nutritious and industrial resources that directly affect human welfare. It also contains huge amounts of oil and natural gas, which has played a role in the economic prosperity of the world. Moreover, seas are considered a source of freshwater through resorting to desalination of seawater ...


Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School

Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman

Western Journal of Legal Studies

The development of the oil sands in Alberta has become a focal point in Canada’s response to global climate change. Before an oil sands project can proceed, it must first undergo environmental assessment. This process frequently engages both provincial and federal environmental assessment legislation, which are implemented by administrative tribunals. The purpose of the paper is two-fold: firstly, to determine whether environmental assessment legislation provides regulators with the tools to assess the impact of an oil sands project's greenhouse gas emissions on the environment, and secondly, to examine how tribunals have been enforcing those standards during assessments. This ...

Mauna Kea Anaina Hou V. Board Of Land And Natural Resources, Wesley J. Furlong 2016 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Mauna Kea Anaina Hou V. Board Of Land And Natural Resources, Wesley J. Furlong

Public Land and Resources Law Review

Native Hawaiians and the scientific community have been pitted against each other in a decades-long culture war over the construction of observatories and telescopes on sacred landscapes. In Mauna Kea Anaina Hou, the Hawai’i Supreme Court handed a victory to Native Hawaiian culture and rights by halting the construction of a new telescope on Mauna Kea. The decision must be read cautiously, however, as it is firmly rooted in the strict application of procedural due process.

No Fracknation Without Representation: Stripping Away A City’S Right To Regulate The Stripping Away Of Its Natural Resources In State Ex Rel. Morrison V. Beck Energy Corp., Derek Rocha

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

In 2011, the city of Munroe Falls, Ohio sought to prevent Beck Energy Corporation from drilling for gas or oil within its city limits until the company complied with the city’s relevant municipal ordinances. Pursuant cases sought to resolve whether Munroe Falls’ municipal ordinances were a valid exercise of the city’s home-rule power. The Ohio Supreme Court determined that the local ordinances conflicted with state law, which regulated oil and gas production within Ohio. The court held that the state law preempted the local ordinances as they sought to regulate oil and gas production in a similar manner ...
