Oil and Gas Joint Operating Agreements: A Comparative Worldwide Analysis

Oil and Gas Joint Operating Agreements: A Comparative Worldwide Analysis

This publication provides in-depth analysis of worldwide joint operating agreements (JOAs), unit operating agreements, and similar agreements based on commonly used forms in different jurisdictions, common modifications to those forms and rationales for those changes, and cases and secondary source material interpreting joint operating agreements. Joint operating agreements are one of the most common, and important, types of upstream oil and gas agreements. Though JOAs worldwide deal with similar issues, the ways in which these issues are handled can differ depending on the jurisdiction and type of form. By dealing with JOAs on a global scale, this publication will facilitate an understanding of these agreements generally, the terms of any particular JOA, how and why parties from other jurisdictions may view a project differently, and creative cross-cultural solutions for common JOA-related issues.
