Abstract
These Regulations amend the Offshore Petroleum Activities (Conservation of Habitats) Regulations 2001 so as to extend the requirement for obtaining the prior written consent of the Secretary of State to UK waters and so as to require prior written consent of the Secretary of State to be obtained by any person who intends to test equipment to be used in geological surveys relating to oil and gas activities where the testing of that equipment takes place on the UK continental shelf or in UK waters. These Regulations also require the Secretary of State to consider whether an appropriate assessment is necessary under the 2001 Regulations before granting a licence under the Petroleum Act 1998.
