The energy sector continues to have a major influence on both Canadian economic growth and national policy. From a legal perspective, the law governing oil and gas is diverse and is drawn from a wide variety of traditional legal disciplines, including torts, administrative law, contracts, securities, trusts, environmental law, commercial law, criminal law and real property law.

Written by one of Canada's most respected energy sector lawyers, the newly revised Oil and Gas (2021 Reissue) title provides a concise, organized and informed narrative of the law that governs the ownership of, access to and extraction of oil and natural gas in Canada. Topics covered include:

  • The types, nature and contents of leases
  • Operating procedures for joint ownership of resources
  • Gross royalty trusts
  • Federal and provincial agencies that regulate the sector
  • Provincial licence transfer requirements
  • Claims in negligence and nuisance
  • Surface rights
  • Purchase and sale of oil and gas interests
  • Titles to land
  • Royalties


    Maurice Coombs, B.Sc., LL.B., LL.M.

    Apart from sole proprietorship, partnership is likely the oldest form of business organization known to the common law and one of the most pervasive. Originally developing out of the law of contracts, it is now an independent body of law that has a life and development of its own. The law of partnerships in Canada represents a classic example of judge-made law, for the most part distilled and illuminated, but not codified, by statute. It continues to be developed by decisions of our courts made in the context of the relevant partnership legislation.

    Thoroughly revised and updated, the Partnerships (2021 Reissue) title provides a clear explanation of the law that governs for-profit, non-corporate business organizations in Canada. Topics covered include:

  • The legal framework
  • The law governing sole proprietorships
  • Creation and duration of partnerships
  • Relations between partners and third persons
  • Relations between partners
  • Legal proceedings involving partners
  • Dissolution of partnerships
  • Limited partnerships
  • Limited liability partnerships
  • Joint ventures
