Information session to improve industry consultation and transparency


NERA Project Manager Matt Smith has joined industry peers from NOPSEMA, APPEA and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science to lead an information session on the progress of improvements to consultation and transparency in the offshore petroleum regulatory regime.

The session gathered together members of Australia’s oil and gas industries and provided an update on a range of initiatives, including:

  • drafting of regulatory amendments to provide a public comment process for exploration environment plans and publication of environment plans for all activities
  • updates to the environment plan assessment process
  • reference cases and other collaborative projects
  • an industry readiness review and work plan

NERA will continue to keep all stakeholders informed of its continuing activities to improve regulatory environments for Australia’s energy resources community.
