  • Renewable Energy in the Middle East

    Energy insecurity is not normally associated with the Middle East. However, away from the oil-rich Persian Gulf, the countries of the eastern Mediterranean are particularly vulnerable. Their fossil fuel endowments are low, while their fractious relationships with each other have long fostered wider political insecurities. Focusing on the Jordan ...

  • Project Finance, 3d

    This title explains the basics of project financing and examines the issues involved in the tendering, negotiation, financial structuring, and management of infrastructure and energy projects. It discusses the application of the law to a variety of project types and offers practical advice on how the law works in commercial ...
