One of the main challenges of our time is to be able to guarantee energy supply at a reasonable price. Policy makers, international institutions and the private sector increasingly look to the oceans as a significant source of energy. The Law of the Sea provides the legal framework within which any maritime activity is performed and strikes a balance between the multiple activities that can take place simultaneously in the same maritime zone. This volume addresses some of the main legal challenges raised by the expansion of the ocean energy sector and its consequences for the relevant international normative and institutional framework. Some of the major themes explored include energy sources and the competition for marine space, energy security, private actors and corporate social responsibility, fragmentation or integration, evolution and reinforcement of international law and liability.

of rapid change in Big History. The first pattern occurred soon after the Big Bang, when the energy in the form of high temperature heat cooled due to expansion, resulting in a decreasing rate of change in the way matter and energy behaved. The second pattern is the more delicate emergence of
1 Introduction * For many decades, the fast growth in China’s power sector has been characterised by sizeable investment in coal-fired generation, and escalating energy sector greenhouse gas emissions ( GGE s). 1 In response to mounting pressure to mitigate GGE s and reduce air pollution caused
interest in securing Middle East energy supplies. It imports approximately 41% of its gas and 51% of it oil from the region ( eia 2014 and 2013). See charts 1 and 2 . This need to fuel its economy, literally, with Middle East energy supplies has driven China’s greater interest in Middle East affairs in
China has been turned from an oil exporter to an oil importer. Nowadays, over 60 per cent of China’s petroleum is imported, making China one of the world’s largest oil importers, second only to the United States.
