Annual reports

Annual reports are required on activities under a petroleum permit for each calendar year.

A calendar year is 1 January to 31 December. If a permit expires, is revoked, is surrendered, or relinquished then the annual report is for the period 1 January to the date the permit ceases.

The relevant regulations are sections 38 through 41 of the Crown Minerals (Petroleum) Regulations 2007. The Chief Executive will request additional information from permit holders in early January.

All reports are due 31 March.
