Four universities combine to offer North Sea Energy Law Programme

The Universities of Aberdeen (United Kingdom), Groningen (the Netherlands), Oslo (Norway), and Copenhagen (Denmark), have joined forces to offer an advanced curriculum on energy law, from wellhead to burnertip.

Due to a process of liberalisation, globalisation and climate change, the energy sector and its legal framework is constantly changing. These changes affect the energy industry and the relationship between producers, suppliers and customers. The number of players has increased and the legal relationships between all parties have become more complex.

The North Sea Energy Law Programme aims to address these changes and to provide the participants with adequate expertise of all relevant aspects of energy law. 

The programme concentrates on the following developments:
Securing Energy Supply: Operations, Investment and Trade - University of Aberdeen
Electricity and gas: Liberalising and Regulating the Market - University of Groningen
Upstream Oil and Gas law: Public and Contractual Law Aspects - University of Oslo
Green Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development - University of Copenhagen

It is a part-time two year programme which is taught in the English language. It consists of four intensive teaching periods of two weeks at four different universities and one final thesis.
