How Governments Manage Their Offshore Petroleum Resources
Chapter 12: Infrastructure
Infrastructure (pipelines, plant and other facilities) is one of the causes of inter-dependence between operations in difference licence areas. Small discoveries may be uneconomic to develop if they cannot obtain access to existing infrastructure. This chapter examines the regulation of the construction and sharing of infrastructure and control exercised by regulators over it. It commences with an examination of regulator oversight over infrastructure development and effective use. It then looks at how companies can get access to infrastructure. The Australian legislation does not provide for oversight over infrastructure, while the Norwegian and UK systems do. There is no applicable third-party access regime in Australia, whereas there is in Norway and the UK.
