Steven Otillar Co-Authors Article on Internationalization of Petroleum Agreements

Akin Gump oil and gas partner Steven Otillar has co-authored the article “Lex Petrolea and the internationalization of petroleum agreements: focus on Host Government Contracts,” which was published in Journal of World Energy Law & Business.

The article focuses on two separate but interrelated themes and discussions: Lex Petrolea and the standardization of international petroleum agreements. Both of these themes, the authors note, relate to the same phenomena: the internationalization of various legal and contractual aspects of the petroleum industry.

Otillar’s co-authors were Kim Taulus, a professor of European law at the University of Eastern Finland who is also editor-in-chief of Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence, and Scott Looper, an energy regulatory lawyer in Houston.
