Oil and Gas Decommissioning Sector Plan

Closed 20 Nov 2018

Opened 9 Oct 2018


We're creating a world class environment protection agency by grounding our regulation and activities across whole sectors. Sector plans will be at the heart of everything we do and will shape our interactions with business.

The sector plan for oil and gas decommissioning will bring a clear and co-ordinated approach to regulation. It will put environmental protection and sustainable resource use at the heart of its development, managing decommissioned waste streams in ways that create economic and social success from environmental excellence.

Why your views matter

The consultation is also an opportunity for business to understand how we will work with them as the sector develops to help them to be compliant with environmental laws and to help them innovate by looking for ways to go further. We would love to hear what you think of our draft plan. Once it’s finalised, we are going to push on and implement it. So if you think we’ve got something wrong, missed something out or not been as transparent as possible, please let us know your thoughts. We want to get this right and then get on with it.
