Open for comment: New guidance on when to submit a proposed revision to an environment plan

News announcement - Published 10 November, 2016

Environments in which petroleum activities are conducted are dynamic and can result in changes to the environmental impacts and risks identified in the accepted environment plan (EP) for the activity. Some of these changes require that a proposed revision to the EP be submitted for reassessment under certain circumstances.

NOPSEMA has developed a guideline in consultation with an industry working group on when a change is likely to trigger the requirement to submit a proposed revision of the EP. To this end, NOPSEMA welcomes further feedback on the guideline. To provide feedback, please direct all comments in writing to feedback@nopsema.gov.au by 9 December 2016.
