  • Decommissioning: 
    • offshore (with particular reference to UK and Gulf of Mexico regulatory and commercial practices) 
    • onshore issues relevant to New Zealand 
  • Service contracting – compensation, risk allocation, ‘knock for knock’ and insurance with a case study from the Macondo blow-out
  • Human Rights Responsibilities in the Oil & Gas Sector: applying the UN Guiding Principles and lessons from the US, Canada and Australia
