This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)An information and samples plan, in relation to a licence event, may provide as appropriate for—

(a)the retention, by the responsible person, of any petroleum-related information or petroleum-related samples held by or on behalf of that person before the licence event,

(b)the transfer of any such information or samples to a new licensee or to a person holding a carbon dioxide storage licence, or

(c)appropriate storage of such information or samples.

(2)An information and samples plan prepared by the OGA under section 31(4) may not include provision under subsection (1)(b) for the transfer of information or samples to another person without the consent of the responsible person.

(3)Where an information and samples plan makes provision under subsection (1) for a person, other than the responsible person, to hold information or samples in accordance with the plan—

(a)the plan may, with the consent of that other person, impose requirements on that person in connection with the information and samples, and

(b)any such requirements are sanctionable in accordance with Chapter 5.

(4)An information and samples plan may provide for the storage of information or samples as mentioned in subsection (1)(c) to be the responsibility of the OGA.

(5)Subsection (6) applies where a transfer of rights under an offshore licence relates to only part of the area in relation to which the licence was granted.

(6)In those circumstances, the information and samples plan prepared in connection with the transfer is to relate to all petroleum-related information and petroleum-related samples held by the responsible person before the licence event, and not only petroleum-related information and petroleum-related samples in respect of that part of the area.

(7)In subsection (1)(b) “carbon dioxide storage licence” means a licence granted under section 18 of the Energy Act 2008.
