There has been made changes in the template for annual status reports from 2017 to 2018.
An annual status report for producing fields (ASR) must be sent to the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) by 1 November each year, see Section 47 of the Regulations to the Act relating to petroleum activities and Section 35 of the Resource Management Regulations.
ASR is an important tool for the resource authorities to secure an up-to-date status of operations and further development of producing fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. ASR shall describe activities and measures, and also provide information regarding recovery conditions on the field, including measures implemented in the previous period, and measures planned for implementation in the coming year.
ASR forms a basis for the resource authorities’ evaluation of production permits, see Section 23 of the Regulations to the Act relating to petroleum activities, Stipulation of production schedule, etc., and must be in accordance with reporting to the Revised national budget (RNB).
There are only minor changes in the ASR guide from 2017 to 2018. An overview of all changes can be found in the Introduction chapter.
The NPD notes that ASR must be submitted to the Directorate in Word-format. If the submitted ASR is not considered to conform to the guidelines, the Directorate may request a new report.
