Changes to Offshore Petroleum Decommissioning Regulation – What it means now and for the future

May 26, 2022 @ 4:45 pm - 7:30 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

SPE WA is pleased to announce our joint-society meeting arranged in conjunction with ERL (Energy & Resources Law) and AIEN (Association of International Energy Negotiators).  Our speaker will be Jane Ballard, Senior Associate of Herbert Smith Freehills, who will deliver an informative and engaging talk on Australia’s decommissioning sector (details below).

About the Presentation

Australia’s offshore petroleum decommissioning regulatory regime has recently seen significant changes with new, far-reaching changes to legislation affecting decommissioning recently passed, including the introduction of trailing liability. More change is anticipated, with a shake up of decommissioning reporting requirements and financial assurance obligations.

The session will provide a brief overview of the changes that have been announced to date and a snapshot of those areas where further changes are expected. Jane will also provide a summary of the session at the APPEA conference that Herbert Smith Freehills is participating in – where these key issues affecting petroleum decommissioning in Australia and what it means for the industry in the future will be discussed by leading representatives from industry, legal, government and regulators.
