Offshore oil and gas projects face numerous technical and legal risks not typically encountered in onshore exploration and production activities. Among these risks is the possibility that the relevant licence/concession area in which an oil and gas company is entitled to explore and/or produce falls within or near an area subject to an international maritime border dispute. This article therefore surveys various different sources of law applicable to offshore oil and gas projects amid maritime border disputes, including (A) the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, (B) the law applicable to the exploration and exploitation of offshore oil and gas resources under joint development agreements negotiated amid maritime territorial disputes, and (C) the law applicable to the exploration of offshore oil and gas resources amid unresolved maritime territorial disputes pursuant to relevant international case law.
