The Department of Industry, Science and Resources (DISR) is undertaking consultations to develop a roadmap for an oil and gas infrastructure decommissioning industry, with the key objectives of:
- growing a decommissioning industry in a safe and ethical way, which also benefits adjacent industries
- creating a safe and high skilled jobs environment which supports indigenous opportunity and gender equality
- creating a shared long-term vision between Government, industry and workers.
Based on the location of existing decommissioning service providers, and the location of existing offshore oil and gas facilities, many of the onshore jobs may be located in regional areas.
DISR would appreciate assistance from RDAs and ALGA in circulating information about this consultation to ensure any interested or relevant parties can contribute to this process.
An issues paper, as well as information on how to provide written feedback via the Consultation Hub, can be found here.
