The EU Oil Laws

The EU Oil Laws

The Lisbon Treaty has introduced a specic energy chapter into European primary law, reecting the growing environmental and nancial problems as well as the concerns of security of supply and industrial competitiveness. In addition, the oil and petroleum sector is governed by various other Treaty provisions. They all lead to an increasing body of secondary legislation that spreads now over the complete value chain, from extraction, imports and distribution, to the quality and the use of petroleum products, including emissions, taxation and eciency.
'The EU Oil Laws' brings together, in a single volume, all oil specic and horizontal energy provisions as well as pertinent legislation concerning environment and eciency, stocks and infrastructures, security of supply and safety of production, trade policy and international organisations, investments and public procurement, market integrity and transparency, research and development. It offers a user-friendly, up-to-date compendium of all oil legislation and soft law, including the recent Commission proposals on revised provisions for sulphur in marine fuels (July 2011), biofuels in road transport (October 2012) and on the safety of oshore installations (October 2012) in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon accident.
