Offshore Petroleum Licensing Regulations (OPLR) 2015 post implementation review 

The Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is carrying out a post-implementation review of the Offshore Petroleum Licensing Regulations 2015, which require a range of considerations to be taken into account before a licence to explore for, or produce, petroleum can be granted or transferred.

BEIS has now published a survey to assess whether the regulations are achieving their objectives.  The survey is aimed at licensees and operators who are required to provide the competent authority (BEIS/HSE) with certain environmental and health and safety information.  

This survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete and will close on 18 September. You can find the survey here
