It covers primary sources of the law: cases, regulations and statutes from different levels of government, including materials produced by various government entities (such as agency or congressional documents), and the types of secondary sources available, including treatises, periodicals and practitioner materials. It also covers the main sources of international oil and gas law to compare them to that of the United States. Finally, the guide outlines what is involved in researching the oil pollution sub-area of this topic.
