Hastings International and Comparative Law Review

Abstract

With man's quest for fossil fuels reaching into the depths of the ocean, the possibility of accidents occurring with transnational results increases. The 1979-1980 Bay of Campeche oil spill provides a graphic example of the pollution that can occur in trying to extract fossil fuels from the sea. The authors examine the basis for liability of a polluting state in international law and some of the difficulties in enforcement.
