§ 28 Application for permission to develop new onshore activity

A party that wishes to establish onshore facilities, or parts thereof, that are not covered under plans as mentioned in Section 27 of these regulations, shall apply to the Norwegian Ocean Industry Authority for permission.
The application shall contain information corresponding to the requirements in Section 27, for onshore facilities.
Section last changed: 01 January 2011

Onshore facilities covered by the Petroleum Act (facilities) will always follow Section 27.
If the Norwegian Ocean Industry Authority decides that the documentation is not satisfactory, the Authority will report this and require supplementary documentation.
It is important for the application to be submitted to the Norwegian Ocean Industry Authority as early as possible before the planned construction start, so that the authorities have sufficient processing time.
In the event of development of new activity, permits from the Norwegian Environment Agency and other involved authorities are also required.
