The oil and gas sector faces a new wave of challenges and opportunities as a result of technological innovation and disruption.

This article considers key legal issues which both incumbent participants and new market entrants will need to navigate effectively in order to succeed in a digitised oil and gas market, be they investors, operators or off-takers.
