This thesis examines the oil and gas legal framework of the Kurdistan Region-Iraq for the purpose of identifying current challenges in the governance of oil and gas and how such challenges can be resolved. In particular, the structure and composition of the Iraqi Constitution, the Kurdistan Region’s Oil and Gas legislation and Model Production Sharing Contract are analysed to determine how the Kurdistan Region’s oil and gas sector can be developed. Kurdish claims of ownership, management and entitlement to a share of oil and gas revenue has resulted in a strong legal case for Kurdish competency over oil and gas governance in Kurdish dominated areas in Iraq.
