New Title: The Palgrave Handbook of Natural Gas and Global Energy Transitions

The Nigerian Tribune writes

Frontline energy lawyer and global vice-chair of the International Law Association (ILA), Prof Damilola Olawuyi, has unveiled his new book titled, ‘The Palgrave Handbook of Natural Gas and Global Energy Transitions’.

The book, published by Palgrave Macmillan, United Kingdom, highlights the important roles of natural gas in the global energy transition and how gas-rich countries such as Nigeria can leverage their comparative advantages as safe, reliable, and environmentally sustainable suppliers of this transition fuel.



With case studies from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, South America, Australia, and the Middle East, the 619-page book co-edited by Professor Olawuyi, SAN and Eduardo Pereira, a Brazilian energy law expert, introduces readers to the latest legal, policy, technological, fiscal, contractual and sustainability innovations in natural gas markets in response to ongoing global energy transitions.

In an unveiling session which held virtually, Olawuyi said the book was written out of the need to provide in-depth knowledge of the transformative implications of the ongoing global energy transitions for natural gas markets across the world.

“Like Nigeria, many natural gas-rich countries across the world are introducing new legal requirements, contractual mechanisms, and industry guidelines in order to meet the projected exponential growth in demand for natural gas in light of the energy transition, in a safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible manner.

“Failure to understand and comply with such emerging standards could pose significant legal, business and transition risks for clients, and their lawyers alike, and may result in complex litigation,” he stated.
