Petroleum operator

Petroleum and geothermal energy operations have two further notification requirements. They need to report ‘notifiable occurrences’ and additional ‘dangerous incidents’.

The definition of a ‘dangerous incident’ is expanded to include:

  • the collapse, overturning or collision of any marine vessel or plant that forms part of a facility
  • the inrush of petroleum, gas, water, steam or mud into a facility
  • an incident where the safe operating parameters of a facility are exceeded.

These definitions are added to the list of dangerous incidents.
