Data Management Plan Preparation Guidelines
This Guide to preparation of Data Management Plans (DMPs) [PDF_115KB] provides information to assist companies in meeting the requirements of the Petroleum (Submerged Lands)(Data Management) Regulations 2004 ('the Regulations'), in particular with the preparation of DMPs for exploration and production activities. (The Regulations can be found at the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism website under the heading Offshore Petroleum Regulations)
The Regulations require that a DMP be provided for exploration and production activities conducted in the Commonwealth Adjacent Areas and that the activity cannot commence until the DMP has been accepted by the Designated Authority. (Note there can be exceptions to this where the DA grants approval for activities to proceed without an approved DMP.)
This guide assists industry in managing data submission requirements. It will be modified with changes to petroleum legislation and supporting regulations. In the event of disagreement between this guide and current legislation or directions the latter will prevail.
