Energy pipeline environmental reports

Energy Pipeline operations are regulated under the Energy Pipelines Act and the Energy Pipeline Regulations. Department policy is that the environment management components of the Pipeline Management Plan are made public in an Environment Management Plan (EMP) that is submitted by the proponent and approved by the Department of Primary Industry and Resources. The EMP must demonstrate how environmental risks are controlled and reduced to a level that is as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP) and acceptable. The development of the EMP requires that stakeholders affected by the activity are properly consulted and engaged and that the full contents of the EMP, with the exception of strictly in confidence information as defined by the Information Act, be made public on the NTG website.

The EMP shall be published on the government’s website as soon as possible after a decision about an Energy Pipeline activity has been made but no later than 14 days after the date of the decision.
