Energy Act 2008

Section 7: Model clauses

28.This section enables the Secretary of State to set out model clauses. Model clauses are standard sets of terms and conditions, which (subject to subsection (3)) will be incorporated in all licences. Such model clauses will be prescribed by regulations subject to negative resolution procedure (see section 105). By virtue of section 104 it will be possible to set out different model clauses for different cases. For instance, sets of model clauses made for gas storage may differ from those for unloading of Liquefied Natural Gas.

29.Subsection (3) enables the Secretary of State to omit or modify one or more of the model clauses in the case of any particular licence.
