A comprehensive reference work for shipping and environmental lawyers and specialists The carriage of crude oil by sea is commonly associated with the disastrous effects of spills. Major spills include those from the Torrey Canyon, the Amoco Cadiz, the Exxon Valdez, the Haven, the Aegean Sea, the Braer and the Sea Empress. As these and other spills have indicated, the resultant pollution damage can take various forms and the resolution of ensuing disputes can be difficult and protracted. This is a detailed and thorough analysis of the law relating to liability and compensation for oil pollution damage caused by ships and covers legal issues which fall within the ambit of admiralty law and practice, international and domestic environmental law and the law relating to marine insurance. In particular, Oil Pollution at Sea:
A reference work for all legal practitioners and specialists who practice in shipping or environmental law, covering the International Convention on Civil Liability for Oil Pollution Damage 1969, the International Convention on the Establishment of an International Fund for Compensation for Oil Pollution Damage 1971, and the 1992 Protocols to these conventions, as well as the common law remedies. Further, comparisons are made to other laws, in particular the United States Oil Pollution Act of 1990.About the Author:
