French term or phrase: Code pétrolier - MORE INFO
Hello all, thanks for your help so far, and let me try to explain better: this document is a statement summarizing a hearing on a counterclaim brought by a holding company based in Hong Kong against two other investment firms based in China and the Ivory Coast, on a contractual dispute over seismic data ownership and claims on oil blocks. So, it does have an international feel to it, but I'm not sure what the name of the Code pétrolier can be rendered as in English.
Well, here is the entire sentence (names omitted) to provide more context. Note that this is the only time in the document that Code pétrolier appears, so this is all we have to go on.
"La société X s’est attachée, en particulier, à montrer que s’agissant d’un domaine particulièrement réglementé, le comportement des différentes autorités qui sont intervenues dans la phase pré-contractuelle est tout à fait surprenant, non seulement parce qu’il ne correspond en aucune façon au comportement avisé minimum que l’on est en droit d’attendre de toute partie à un contrat de cette importance, mais également parce que s’agissant d’une société nationale, d’une part et d’autorités étatiques d’autre part, il est évident que la partie ivoirienne se devait de respecter les règles juridiques applicables en la matière et en particulier, les mesures prescrites par la loi du 29 août 1996 portant Code Pétrolier."
