State Responsibility and Liability for Long Term Carbon Capture and Storage in the Event of Leakage from the Sub Seabed.
AuthorSharif, Abbas Ahdal
This thesis considers and analyses the applicable international rules and regulatory regimes of state responsibility and liability for long-term storage of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the sub seabed geologic formations in the event of leakage. Depending on where the leakage of stored CO2 may occur, the legal implications differ due to the impact of national borders or jurisdictional zones. The purpose of the thesis is to tackle the international aspect of leakage of CO2 that which has clear transboundary or international implications. The thesis will examine three pieces of international treaties: UNCLOS 1982 , London Convention and the Protocol of 1996 to the London Convention and OSPAR Convention.
