This paper will examine the process of reform, focusing on the actions of the oil producing states and the rationale for the recent acts of expropriation and nationalization. The role international law has played and is now playing will also be examined. Finally, the attitudes of the states in which the oil companies are incorporated will be analyzed. Special attention will be given to the United States.
