RLMS has extensive experience in dealing with legislative compliance for petroleum activities and can assist in all phases of project development from exploration through to production and rehabilitation. Oil and gas (including coal seam gas) exploration and development in Queensland is subject to the Petroleum and Gas (Production and Safety) Act 2004 and the Petroleum Act 1923. Environmental aspects of petroleum activities are administered under the Environmental Protection Act 1994. Oil and Gas projects may also need to comply with the Regional Planning Interest Act 2014 (expected to be operational in second half of 2014) when located in living, high quality agriculture and sensitive environmental areas as defined in a Regional Plan, created under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. RLMS also performs the same services under similar legislation and regulations in NSW and South Australia.
RLMS staff have experience with preparing applications for all petroleum authority types under petroleum legislation. Additionally, we can provide tenure management services that include report preparation, government approval processes, updating Environmental Authorities, close out and legislative compliance assessments. In coordination with our infrastructure and land services, RLMS can also carry out pipeline route identification and landholder negotiations.
RLMS can identify the key issues impacting on the approval of your project, and develop strategies to take your project from concept to implementation.
