Licensees are encouraged to use templates prepared by the Department of State Development as the basis for preparing notifications to landowners of intended entry to their land.

Company Annual Reports 

Regulation 33 of the Petroleum and Geothermal Energy Regulations 2000 requires licensees to submit an annual report at the end of each licence year.  It also stipulates what information is to be included in these reports.

The Company Annual Report Template 2008.1 (.DOC - 138 KB) is aimed at providing guidance to licensees on the creation of their annual license reports.  The template creates a consistent structure in annual reports and provides examples while succinctly following the Regulations.  This template will be updated when appropriate.

Previous annual reports may be found on the following pages:


Landowner Notice of Entry

Part 10 of the Petroleum and Geothermal Energy Act 2000 requires licensees to notify landowners prior to entering land for petroleum exploration and production activities.

Notice of intent to enter land for preliminary petroleum exploration activities  (.DOC - 68 KB) is primarily aimed at providing the Department of Environment and Heritage with appropriate notification for reconnaissance surveys and for Work Area Clearance activities, for native title or heritage purposes and environmental survey within regional reserves.

Notice of intent to enter land for all petroleum activities  (.DOC - 56 KB) is primarily aimed at providing detailed information to landowners as required by Regulation 22 of the Petroleum and Geothermal Regulations 2000.

More information about land access issues is included in the section on Environment and Land Access.

The Liaison guidelines for landowners and petroleum and geothermal energy explorers in South Australia (PDF - 511KB) is a guide to establishing and maintaining good relations between the petroleum industry and land owners, occupiers and titleholders.
