Supplementary

53Publication of details of sanctions

(1)The OGA may publish details of any sanction notice given in accordance with this Chapter.

(2)But the OGA may not publish anything that, in the OGA’s opinion—

(a)is commercially sensitive,

(b)is not in the public interest to publish, or

(c)is otherwise not appropriate for publication.

(3)If, after details of a sanction notice are published by the OGA, the sanction notice is—

(a)cancelled on appeal, or

(b)withdrawn under section 55,

the OGA must publish details of the cancellation or withdrawal.

54Subsequent sanction notices

(1)This section applies where the OGA gives a sanction notice in respect of a particular failure to comply with a petroleum-related requirement (whether the notice is given alone or at the same time as another type of sanction notice).

(2)If the sanction notice given is a revocation notice or an operator removal notice, no further sanction notices may be given in respect of the failure to comply.

(3)If the sanction notice given is a financial penalty notice which does not require compliance with the petroleum-related requirement, no further sanction notices may be given in respect of the failure to comply.

(4)Subsection (5) applies if the sanction notice given is—

(a)an enforcement notice, or

(b)a financial penalty notice which requires compliance with the petroleum-related requirement.

(5)No further sanction notices may be given in respect of the failure to comply before the end of the period specified under section 43(2)(c) or 44(2)(c)(i), as the case may be (period for compliance with petroleum-related requirement).

55Withdrawal of sanction notices

(1)The OGA may, at any time after giving a sanction notice, withdraw the sanction notice.

(2)If a sanction notice is withdrawn by the OGA—

(a)the notice ceases to have effect, and

(b)the OGA must notify the following persons of the withdrawal of the notice—

(i)the person or persons to whom the notice was given,

(ii)in the case of a revocation notice, the persons who were required to be informed of the giving of the revocation notice under section 47(8), and

(iii)in the case of an operator removal notice, the licensee under whose licence the operator operates.

56Alternative means of enforcement

(1)Where the OGA gives a sanction notice to an offshore licensee in respect of a failure to comply with a petroleum-related requirement, the matter is to be dealt with in accordance with this Chapter.

(2)Any requirement under the licensee’s licence to deal with the matter in a certain way (including by arbitration) does not apply in respect of that failure to comply.
