heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the in MSc in Energy Law, Business, Regulation & Policy at the International Hellenic University. In recent times, Mediterranean Sea has been at the global spotlight for petroleum exploration and exploitation, mainly due to the major discoveries made in the eastern region. Greece, in the years of financial crisis, has showed a strong interest to develop its offshore oil and gas sector and major developments are projected in the coming future. The offshore activity in Greece, as in rest Mediterranean states, is associated with major environmental hazards due to the semi-enclosed nature of the sea, the high ecological value and the vulnerability of the aquatic ecosystem. Large oil spills may affect numerous coastal states with devastating consequences, while operational discharges degrade dangerously an already polluted environment. My thesis examines the issue in its legal dimension, viz from the scope of Greek applicable regime regulating marine pollution from offshore installations. In the first section, the magnitude of the risks is exhibited with the scale of Greek offshore sector growth, the pollution that arises from units and the Greek specific concerns. Afterword, the research centre’s at the main tools for safety, pollution prevention and response under the international law, the European law and Greek domestic law. The survey extends to the rules for the responsibility of oil and gas companies in case of damage, since a strict liability framework promotes the implementation of precautionary measures, while the issue of adequate remediation is also mentioned through the financial security provisions. By doing that, the scope is to determine the effectiveness of the instruments for Greek seas protection, to underline their gaps and limitations. Finally, the major weaknesses of the Greek regulatory system are considered, inter alia the insufficient implementation of EU environmental law. The concluding chapter makes specific recommendations on essential reforms in international legislation and Greek law and policy. Keywords: offshore, oil, gas, environment, regulation
