Oil and gas operations
Oil and gas operators must apply for consent to carry out activities in the EEZ.
COVID-19 Protection Framework: Our offices are open. More details
This page has information about applications for oil and gas activities that are being considered in the EEZ.
These applications include marine consents, marine discharge consents, and marine dumping consents.
Consents may be publicly notified, giving people the opportunity to make a submission. Other types of consent may be non-notified, meaning the public cannot make a submission.
These are consents granted by the EPA
Decision reports for discharge consents applied for under the Discharge and Dumping Regulations 2015
These allow petroleum operators to continue activity started before the EEZ Act came into force
