Environmental Law Handbook

   The last two years have seen big changes in U.S. environmental regulations and, likewise, big changes in the Environmental Law Handbook. The most important change to note is that the Environmental Law Handbook, previously published by Government Institutes for over thirty-five years and through twenty-one editions, is now published by Bernan Press, a leading publisher of government information, and the largest source for publications from U.S. government agencies and worldwide intergovernmental organizations. As GI's flagship publication, the Environmental Law Handbook has consistently delivered a comprehensive and accessible source for the most accurate and up-to-date information on environmental laws in the United States. Each chapter is written by a recognized legal authority, and although the information represents the state of the art of the field, it is always presented in a straightforward and accessible way and in plain English, with as little legal jargon as possible. Even though the twenty-second edition of the Environmental Law Handbook is now published by Bernan, you can still rely on it to be your top source for information on the environmental legal and regulatory structure and its implications. As always, you get leading experts in the field, all of whom are practicing lawyers, giving you up-to-date information and interpretations on the major environmental laws. Chapters likewise offer actionable advice for businesses regarding how to comply with new and updated federal regulations. As in previous editions, the twenty-second edition of the Environmental Law Handbook begins with a general introduction to environmental law and a chapter on how the laws are enforced before delving into individual environmental laws and issues. Several chapters have been extensively updated, including the chapters on the Clean Air Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, climate change, pesticides, and the Comprehensive Environmental Resource, Compensation, and Liability Act.

Deepwater Petroleum Exploration and Production - A Nontechnical Guide

   As with any foray into a new frontier, history and innovation have been happening almost every day since our first edition's publication date. As in the first edition, our first two chapters of the book will bring you from the first geologic toe-in-the-water in California more than hundred years ago to stepping off the Outer Continental Shelf of the Gulf of Mexico into thousands of feet of water. That journey is just the prelude to understanding present and even future deepwater operations. To complete the setting, this edition adds a new complete chapter on geology and geophysics. To pull this off, we asked four accomplished scientists in the field, Stephen Sears, Fred Keller, Tim Garfield, and Mike Forrest, all with decades of experience with large exploration and production (E&P) organizations, to contribute chapter 3. The processes for exploring, developing, and producing petroleum in the deepwater are about the same as for the shelf or, really, the onshore. From the outside, just four steps take place—explore, appraise, develop, and produce. From the inside, each of these processes takes many more steps, depending on how closely we look. And we look closer in chapters 4 through 13, even more closely than in the first edition. We have added other new chapters on the drilling rigs and service vessels used in the deepwater...

Offshore Operation Facilities - Equipment and Procedures

   After Dagang Oil Field was discovered in 1964, which was called Plant 641 at that time, the Chinese offshore oil industry started in 1965 when the Ministry of Petroleum Industry decided to "go to the sea." Although offshore oil began 70 years later in China than in the rest of the world, through decades of hard work, China's offshore oil and gas exploration and development has witnessed astonishing progress and thus has made great achievements that attract worldwide attention. China has discovered six big oil and gas basins in the 130*10 m2 offshore continental shelf of the Bohai Sea, South Yellow Sea, East China Sea, South Sea Pearl River Mouth, Yinggehai in Beibu Gulf, and the shallow water of Taiwan Strait. It is estimated that China has an abundance in offshore oil and gas resources with (150 ~ 200) x 10s t of oil resources and 14 x 1012 m3 of natural gas resources. By creating the Foreign Cooperative Exploitation of Offshore Petroleum Resources Act in 1982, China established China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC, for short). Against this backdrop, China's offshore oil industry took a new step. Over the past 20 years, China has been following the principle of foreign cooperation while maintaining independent management; at the same time, China has insisted on the innovation of systems and technology, as well as following the path of internationalized development. In terms of offshore oil and gas development and production, China has achieved continuously high-speed and high-efficiency performance. Oil production developed from an annual output of 8 x 104 t in 1982 to 4293 x 104 t in 2008 (equivalent to total oil and gas production in that year). Take the CNOOC as an example: Its gross assets reached CNY 428.5 billion with its net assets reaching CNY 291.6 billion, and its sales volume, gross profit, and taxes paid that year reached CNY 198.3 billion, 67.7 billion, and 56.9 billion, respectively. This made a significant contribution to the national economy...

Commencement of Laytime

   The object of this book is to research the English common law in relation to the subject of the commencement of laytime, to consider criticisms of that law, and to look at various remedies which may be open to the parties to a charterparty contract to vary the common law position. For example, many types of clauses have been introduced into charterparties over the years which compensate shipowners for time spent by their vessels waiting at or off a port when laytime, under the common law, would not have commenced. Consideration is also given to breaches of contract which, by allowing shipowners a remedy in damages, provide compensation for the time that a vessel is waiting off a port when laytime would not otherwise have commenced. Commencement of laytime (laytime being the amount of time allowed for loading/discharging vessels over and above which the shipowner is invariably paid demurrage) is a subject of extreme importance since it applies to every voyage charterparty and involves large sums of money in the aggregate. In practice, it is invariably the most important factor in laytime/demurrage disputes. The subject has led to a great many court cases as well as scores of arbitrations—in fact, arbitrations on the subject continue to take place in London every year and it seems that the subject is incapable of exhaustion.

Time Charters

   From its first edition this book has been built on the framework of the wording of the 1946 revision of the Xew York Produce form of time charter. Despite showing its age - the original form has just celebrated its one hundredth anniversary - it continues to dominate the dry cargo trades, albeit often heavily amended. Meanwhile, use of the once-popular Baltime form lias continued to decline to the point at which we have decided the time has finally come to dismantle its dedicated chapter and to distribute its content around the rest of this book according to subject matter. The full text of the Baltime is. however, still set out. at F.3. Tanker-specific commentary continues to appear in our final chapters, on the Shelltime 4 form for English law and the ExxonMobil Time 2005 form (which has replaced the STB form) for U.S. law. The updating and revision necessitated by new decisions from courts and arbitrators since the 6th edition has been substantial, with developments in many important areas. We have also undertaken some rewriting and reordering of material, in accordance with our ongoing desire to make the material easy to access and as clear in meaning as its nature allows, hi conjunction with Voyage Charters, we have introduced the letter A to distinguish more clearly references to U.S. law paragraphs from those concerned with English law. allowing for an improved Index and for greater continuity of the paragraph numbering in the U.S. law text for the future; the U.S. law text continues to be marked by a vertical margin line. It remains our aim to present the law in our chosen area in a way which will help those engaged in chartering and operating ships (and their advisers) to refer to the leading authorities on any particular point of doubt as quickly and easily as possible.

   On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee of the 7-th International Ship Stability Workshop. I warmly welcome all the participants of the workshop to Shanghai. Ship has been a powerful tool for marine transportation in the human history. With the global development of economics, the amount of marine transportation around the world is even increasing now. Among the various technical aspects in naval architecture, from an academic viewpoint, ship stability possesses its own unique and essential importance. I hope the present Workshop will provide a forum for a clear overview and deep discussions on the recent research progress in tins aspect. I appreciate very much all the kind support and help from the members of Standing Committee of the International Ship Stability Conference and the workshop session organizers. The Workshop would not be so successful without their enthusiasm and continuous efforts. Thanks also to all the authors for their contributions to the Workshop. Shanghai is one of the most advanced cities in China and great development has been achieved in past decade. I hope everybody will enjoy your stay in Shanghai.

An Introduction to Marine Drilling

   Over the years. I have seen many changes in the industry from the period of growth in the I970's to our present day recession. I have had .the privilege to witness first hand some outstanding advances in techniques and technology and yet for me at least, drilling remains something of a mystery. Infamous for its jargon, it is as complex as it is fascinating. It is therefore a particular pleasure to discover, after so many years, a book which is both readable and comprehensive, and which succeeds in revealing to me, as I am sure it will do for all its readers, whatever their level of interest, something of the "black art" of drilling. It also gives me pleasure to think that much of the authors knowledge arises from his connection with Houlders. First as a cadet on the "Worcester" established at Ingress Abbey on the Thames, my Grandfathers home and more recently during his time offshore with the company. Houlder Marine Drilling is the offspring of the shipping company founded by my Grandfather in 1848. Interest in drilling arose in about 1973 as the result of a chance conversation with a Norwegian shipowner who introduced me to Bernard Larsen, another shipowner, who I believe to have originated the conceptual design for the famous H-3. Just as the author learned from Houlder, so Houlder in turn had learned from the established drilling industry which in turn had learned from the Moho project. This was to discover by drilling, the composition of the core of the earth. As much as possible was to be drilled through water, and I think that the drillship owes more to the Moho technology than to the offshore shallows of Louisiana.
