Maria Kyriacou addresses the Industry, Research and Energy Committee of the European Parliament
Following the accident caused by the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in 2010, the European Commission launched an assessment of safety in offshore oil and gas activities in European waters and presented a proposal for a Regulation in October 2011.
It intends to respond to the increased risks of offshore oil and gas activities by ensuring the application of best practices for major hazard control throughout the EU, by strengthening Member States' preparedness and response capacity and by clarifying the existing legal framework on liability and compensation.
Maria Kyriacou, head of our Nicosia office and leader of the firm's EU law department, was invited to give her expert advice on the proposed Regulation to the Industry, Research and Energy Committee of the European Parliament on 9 July.
