Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Since the beginnings of the United States oil industry 150 years ago, production activity has been governed by the law of capture, dictating that a driller owns the oil drilled from his/her property even if the oil has migrated from under neighboring land as a result of the drilling process. In this meticulously researched and richly documented account, Terence Daintith adopts a historical and comparative perspective to show how legal rules, technical knowledge (or the lack thereof) and political events and ideas combined to shape attitudes and behavior in the business of oil production.

Since the beginnings of the oil industry, production activity has been governed by the 'law of capture,' dictating that one owns the oil recovered from one's property even if it has migrated from under neighboring land. This 'finders keepers' principle has been excoriated by foreign critics as a 'law of the jungle' and identified by American commentators as the root cause of the enormous waste of oil and gas resulting from US production methods in the first half of the twentieth century. Yet while in almost every other country the law of capture is today of marginal significance, it continues in full vigour in the United States, with potentially wasteful results.
In this richly documented account, Terence Daintith adopts a historical and comparative perspective to show how legal rules, technical knowledge (or the lack of it) and political ideas combined to shape attitudes and behavior in the business of oil production, leading to the original adoption of the law of capture, its consolidation in the United States, and its marginalization elsewhere.
About the Author: Terence Daintith is the former director of the University of London's Institute of Advanced Legal Studies. He is a visiting professor at the University of Western Australia and at the University of Melbourne Law School, and is co-editor of the standard treatise on United Kingdom oil and gas law.
