This guidance was withdrawn on

The Oil & Gas Authority launched a new website on 3 October 2016 to reflect its new status as a government company.

This formalises the transfer of the Secretary of State’s regulatory powers in respect of oil and gas to the OGA, and grants it new powers. This website will no longer be updated. Visitors should refer to www.ogauthority.co.uk

From 17th June 2013 The Gas and Petroleum (Consents) Charges Regulations 2013 come into effect.

This will mean DECC will be charging fees for consents issued under Petroleum Licences, Offshore methane gas and carbon dioxide storage licences and for Pipeline Works Authorisations, issued under Part III of the Petroleum Act 1998.

Attached below is the Guidance on the new regime which includes a link to the Regulation on the “Legislation.gov.uk” website
