OFFSHORE PETROLEUM AND GREENHOUSE GAS STORAGE (RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION) REGULATIONS 2011 - REG 9.14

Requirement for final well completion report and data

             (1)  A greenhouse gas titleholder commits an offence if the titleholder:

                     (a)  undertakes drilling operations in a title area; and

                     (b)  does not give the Titles Administrator a final well completion report and all final well completion data within:

                              (i)  12 months after the rig release date; or

                             (ii)  if the Titles Administrator authorises the greenhouse gas titleholder to give the report and data within another period--the other period.

Penalty:  50 penalty units.

             (2)  In this regulation:

"final well completion data" means each type of data mentioned in Schedule 2:

                     (a)  presented on a medium and in a format specified in the item; or

                     (b)  presented on another medium or in another format that the Titles Administrator has authorised the greenhouse gas titleholder to use.

"final well completion report" means a report that includes all of the information listed in subregulation (3).

             (3)  For the definition of final well completion report in subregulation (2), the information required is in the following table.
