Research Tips: OGEL (Oil, Gas & Energy Law) Database

OGEL is an oil and gas law database with an international focus, and it can be accessed via the Legal Databases drop-down menu on the law library's homepage. It includes the OGEL Journal, which began in 2003, and concentrates on recent international developments in this area of law. All issues or individual articles can be downloaded in PDF, and it can be browsed by article author or subject category. There is also Legal & Regulatory Materials section that is under continuous development, and it contains laws, regulations, contracts, guidelines, and court awards that can be downloaded in either PDF or Word.

OGEL can be searched by keyword, article author, country, category, and date. A Help link on the search form explains how searching works within the database, and if you have any additional questions, be sure to ask a reference librarian for assistance.
