THE LEGAL PROBLEMS OF LONG TERM LNG CONTRACTS
The erosion of the sanctity of long-term contracts is discussed, and the paper examines whether in fact 15-20 year LNG contracts can be relied upon when the surrounding circumstances change. Changes provided for and not provided for in the contracts are considered, and the practice in various countries is briefly reviewed. The adoption of more flexible doctrines outlined in the paper is recommended. Order from NSFI as No. 14799.
