Call for entries to Steve Weston Prize

CEPMLP is calling for entries to the Steve Weston Prize, an annual essay competition on oil and gas law administered by Energy, Petroleum, Mineral and Natural Resources Law and Policy Education Trust.

The competition honours the memory of Steve Weston, a leading practitioner of oil and gas law, particularly in the developing regions.

Open to all, the Steve Weston Prize is awarded to the author or authors of an outstanding essay on a preselected topic. Worth up to £1000, the Prize is funded by BP, Shell, Herbert Smith, CMS Cameron McKenna, Linklaters and Wragges.

The topic for 2009 is "Does the current legal regime governing the Arctic provide an adequate
basis for investment by oil and gas companies or an appropriate framework for oil and gas exploration in this sensitive region?"

All entries should be 3000 words in length and submitted electronically to no later than 30 September 2009.
