About this book

The extraction of oil and gas from offshore continental shelves represents one of the most dynamic and complex sectors of global petroleum development. Atlantic Canada is no exception and the history of Scotian Basin petroleum over the past half century reveals a fascinating series of political challenges, accommodations, and settlements. Peter Clancy's comprehensive analysis of petroleum politics in Nova Scotia demonstrates the intricate intergovernmental and intercorporate relationships, ecological concerns, and Aboriginal interests that have complicated offshore development. His incisive analysis of the politics at play provides new insights into the unique challenges facing the petroleum industry in Atlantic Canada.
