In this Part:
"field" , in relation to a field development plan, means an area within the licence area that is subject to the plan.
"licence area" , in relation to an applicant for a petroleum production licence, means the area constituted by the block or blocks that will be the subject of the petroleum production licence if the licence is granted.
"major change" , in relation to the recovery of petroleum from a field, includes the following:
(a) the petroleum production licensee changes the development strategy or management strategy of a field or a petroleum pool;
(b) the petroleum production licensee changes the plan for the development of additional pools in the field;
(c) the petroleum production licensee ceases production, permanently or for the long term, before the date proposed in the field development plan;
(d) the petroleum production licensee introduces new methods for the petroleum recovery, such as enhanced recovery and injection of fluids.
"significant event" includes the following:
(a) a change in the understanding of the characteristics of the geology or reservoir that may have a significant impact on the optimum recovery of petroleum;
(b) a new or increased risk to the recovery of petroleum within the licence area;
(c) a new or increased risk to the recovery of petroleum outside the licence area caused by the development of pools in the licence area;
(d) a new or increased risk of activities in the licence area causing effects outside the licence area (for example aquifer depletion caused by hydrocarbon extraction);
(e) change to the proposed option for development of pools in the licence area, including any tie-in opportunity with nearby licence areas.
