'Terence Daintith's comprehensive review of the law of capture seeks to address the needs of both the expert practitioner and the non specialist enquirer and leaves neither wanting. This definitive text is a thoroughly enjoyable read. A quite splendid accomplishment by one of the foremost experts in the field.'
Malcolm Webb. Chief Executive, Oil & Gas UK
'Daintith brings to life one of the most important aspects affecting the evolution of global oil and gas. His comprehensive research coupled with an engaging writing style allows for a most interesting and educational analysis. To tame the Rule of Capture, governments have adopted policies relating to how oil and gas is shared and developed. Daintith discusses, analyzes, and evaluates these efforts. His observations and insights are essential to understanding the history of how we developed today's rules and provide a foundation to understanding oil and gas unitizationswhich are about to transform oil and gas in the next century as the Rule of Capture did in the prior century.'

'Be warned, when you do pick it up you quickly will become engaged in the story and thus find it hard to put down...this book will be of great interest and value to historical and legal scholars alike. Likewise, the same is true for anyone involved in the Oil Patch, for here in a single source is the history, development, and application of one of the foundations of the itnernational oil and gas industry.'
