Open for comment: New guidance addressing change to the titleholder with operational control of activities

News announcement - Published 20 June, 2017

NOPSEMA has published for comment a draft guidance note to assist incoming and existing titleholders (relevant parties) in maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements when there is a change to the titleholder with operational control of a well or petroleum activity.

For the purposes of the guidance, a titleholder with operational control of an activity is defined as the entity that has responsibility for day to day oversight and management of the activity under that entity’s corporate policies, management systems, contracts and other arrangements.

NOPSEMA is seeking feedback from industry and other stakeholders to understand if the guidance will assist relevant parties in ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements during a transfer of operational control. To provide feedback, please submit all comments in writing to before 22 September 2017.
