Changes in the PDO/PIO guidelines
The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has changed the guidelines for preparing plans for development and operation of petroleum deposits (PDOs) and plans for installation and operation of facilities for transport and for exploitation of petroleum (PIOs).
This edition replaces the guidelines published on 30 June 2017.
These changes are being made on the basis of an initiative from the Federation of Norwegian Industries, the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions and the Norwegian United Federation of Trade Unions. The objective includes reducing the risk of major delays and overruns, and improving socio-economic profitability in development projects on the Norwegian shelf. The Ministry has supported the initiative. Following a constructive and effective process where Norwegian Oil and Gas has also been involved, the sections relating to project execution (Items 5.6 and 6.4) are now being revised.
