Submission Guidelines for Petroleum Data
The Version 7.0 Guidelines for submission of petroleum data, contains the Guidelines for submission of petroleum data required under State / Territory and Commonwealth (Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006) legislation (Version No. 7.0 March 2010).
The Guidelines will assist industry in managing data submission requirements and for feedback. They will be modified as required in accordance with prevailing petroleum legislation and supporting regulations. Title holders are encouraged to submit data in the manner described in the document. In the event of disagreement between these guidelines and current legislation or directions, the latter will prevail.
The Regulations are objective based and provide a framework for encouraging the adequate collection and timely dissemination of petroleum data for the long term benefit of the Australian community. This is achieved by assisting in ensuring the adequacy of the data acquired and to allowing for the efficient management of data confidentiality and the disclosure of data on completion of relevant confidentiality periods. An important aspect of the Regulation is the development of an agreed Data Management Plan specifying acceptable methods of acquiring, maintaining and submitting data, including the possibility of approved holders storing and maintaining the data.
