Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence (OGEL, ISSN 1875-418X, invites submissions for a Special Issue focusing on ESG. The editors for this issue are Gerald Pachoud, Managing Partner of Pluto advisory and Professor Kim Talus, James McCulloch Chair in Energy Law and Director, Tulane Center for Energy Law Tulane Law School; Professor of European Economic and Energy Law, UEF Law School; Professor of Energy Law, University of Helsinki.

One of the greatest challenges to the oil and gas industry today include the emerging Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related rules and regulations as demonstrated by new ESG requirements in most of the home states of major energy companies. The European Union, South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom, among others, have instituted specific sustainability reporting regulations.

Many oil and gas companies are adapting to this new environment, others are still lagging behind, but they all face challenges and open questions, particularly relating to the restrictions on investments and the disclosure obligations many new emerging regimes create to the energy industry.

This OGEL Special Issue seeks to provide information ESG related laws, regulation and rules and their application and impact on the oil and gas industry. We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. The topics may cover a wide range of issues such as:

* Preconditions for the investments in oil gas in the era of ESG
* The role of banks and ESG
* The role of private sector and ESG
* Case studies on ESG related litigation
* National reports on ESG regimes in place or in the making
* Identifying unintended consequences of regulations and possible loopholes that need to be filled
* Adaptation required to an ESG environment
* Challenges and opportunities of ESG disclosure.

The minimum word count of articles should be 5000 words (excluding footnotes, endnotes, appendices, tables, summary etc.). Articles should include summaries (150-200 words). The layout of the articles should conform to OGEL's submission guidelines available at: (more information available upon request).
