Our Environment Plans and Commitments

All PTTEP’s activities comply with environmental requirements contained within the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act (1999) and the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage (Environmental) Regulations Act (2006).

The EPBC Act is the Australian Government’s central piece of environmental legislation. It provides a legal framework to protect and manage nationally and internationally important flora, fauna, ecological communities and heritage places—defined in the EPBC Act as matters of national environmental significance. Some commitments associated with the EPBC Act require PTTEP AA to publish information on our website. These include the Montara Field EPBC Approval Annual Compliance Report and the Montara Oil Spill Contingency Plan (OSCP).

The OPGGS(E)R Act requires petroleum operators to submit Environment Plans before the commencement of any new activity or any significant modification, change or new stage of an existing activity.

Exploration and Appraisal Drilling Environment Plan

PTTEP AA is currently preparing an Environment Plan (EP), in accordance with the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage (Environment) Regulations 2009, to undertake exploration and appraisal drilling activities within exploration permit AC/P54 and retention lease AC/RL7.

PTTEP AA is planning to submit the EP to the regulator, the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA), in Quarter 2, 2018.

The exploration and appraisal drilling program will involve the drilling, evaluation and abandonment of up to 5 wells, over the next 5 years.

The first exploration well Orchid-1, located in exploration permit AC/P54, is scheduled to be drilled in Quarter 3, 2018. Drilling of Orchid-1 is expected to take approximately 35 to 100 days.

For more information on the exploration and appraisal drilling program, the potential environmental risks and impacts, and the associated management controls, please see the fact sheet below.
