Offshore Petroleum Production and Pipelines (Assessment of Environmental Effects) (Amendment) Regulations 2007

Listed below are details of projects that have been assessed by the Secretary of State since the above Regulations came into force on the 16 April 2007 and been determined as not likely to have any significant impact on the environment and therefore exempt from the obligation to submit a formal application for a direction and undertake an environmental impact assessment.

Such exemptions are currently restricted to minor pipeline works that are located entirely within existing safety zones around offshore facilities, on the grounds that these works will not have any significant impact on the environment, commercially exploited marine resources, protected habitats or species, or other users of the sea.

These regulations also apply to the renewal of a production consent where the consent relates to the term of the consent being extended but without any other variation in the conditions attached to the consent.
