INTERTANKO Oil Pollution Legislation in Littoral States of the USA
This publication sets out US State Oil Pollution Laws, focusing on the parties responsible, the range of claims and the potential financial liability. The publication is useful for any tanker owner trading to US ports.
INTERTANKO published its first review of US State Oil Pollution Laws in 1993 in response to the US Oil Pollution Act 1990 (OPA 90). This book was published following the Deepwater Horizon spill and focuses particularly on the rights to limit ship liability. It has been expertly compiled by Professor Martin Davies, Director of Tulane Maritime Law Center.
