Energy Law, Petroleum Law


The purpose of this paper is to discuss recent developments in the la w which are of interest to lawyers whose practice relates to the oil and gas industry. It deals with both judicial decisions and statutory developments during the last year. Some of the cases discussed do not pertain directly to the oil and gas industry. These cases have been included either because they involve situations analogous to those which occur frequently in the oil and gas business or because they concern principles of law which are applicable to that industry. In order to place some limit on the scope of the paper, only federal and Alberta legislative developments are reported. In addition, we have not discussed federal income tax legislation, which is the subject of a separate paper delivered at this year's conference. The review of the legislation is effective as of May 1, 1985.**
