(1)This section contains provision about revocation notices which may be given under section 42 (failure to comply with a petroleum-related requirement).

(3)Where two or more persons are the licensee in respect of a petroleum licence, the revocation notice may be given jointly to some or all of those persons.

(4)A revocation notice is a notice which—

(a)specifies the petroleum-related requirement in question,

(b)gives details of the failure to comply with the requirement,

(c)informs the person or persons to whom the notice is given that the petroleum licence held by that person or those persons is to be revoked in relation to that person, or those persons, on the date specified in the notice (“the revocation date”).

(5)The revocation date must not be earlier than the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the day on which the revocation notice was given.

(6)A revocation notice may not be given in circumstances where the licence to be revoked in accordance with the notice is one which, on the date the notice is given, the OGA would not have the power to grant.

(7)Where a licence is revoked in relation to a person in accordance with a revocation notice—

(a)the rights granted to the person by the licence cease on the revocation date;

(b)the revocation does not affect any obligation or liability imposed on or incurred by the person under the terms and conditions of the licence;

(c)the terms and conditions of the licence apply as if the licence had been revoked in accordance with those terms and conditions, subject to section 56(2).

(8)Where two or more persons are the licensee in respect of a petroleum licence and a revocation notice is given in relation to some of those persons, but not in relation to others (the “continuing licence holders”), the OGA must inform the continuing licence holders that—

(a)the revocation notice has been given, and

(b)the licence will continue to have effect in relation to them following the revocation date.
