Abstract

The relevance of hydrocarbon resources to both developing and developed countries cannot be overemphasised especially as it relates to the economic development of such countries and ensuring some degree of stability on energy security concerns. It is on these grounds that countries desire to identify and control such resources located within their boundaries. While such boundaries are easily identifiable in some cases, in others the lack of a consensus over boundary lines forms the basis for prolonged conflict. This is in spite of the robust international legal regime on the subject of boundary delimitation.
