Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the technical aspects of the F4 environmental claims and the challenges that Iraq’s scientific experts faced in assessing the claims of damages caused by Iraq’s invasion and occupation of Kuwait. The F4 environmental claims are categorized into two types of claims arising from the oil spill into the Gulf and the onshore oil spill from well blowouts and burning oil wells in Kuwait. The first category of claims includes primary restoration of damage, while the second category comprises the claims for interim losses, residual damage, or compensatory restoration.

Keywords:   F4 environmental claims, Iraq, Kuwait, oil spill, well blowouts, interim losses, residual damage, compensatory restoration
