    OEUK Decommissioning Security Agreements – Default Provisions

    It is crucial to the operation of the arrangements set out in decommissioning security agreements (“DSA”) that parties post the required security within the timelines set out in the DSA as well as comply with their other obligations under the DSA. To enforce this requirement (and in common with many types of contracts), DSAs will include default provisions to cover various circumstances which may impact on the amount of availability of the security provided under the contract.The consequences of default when such circumstances arise differ depending on the specific terms of the provisions....

    Energy Sector: Is this REUL-ly happening? Update on the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023

    We reported in 2022 on the introduction to Parliament of the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill (the “Bill”). The legislation underwent some significant amendments before the ultimate enactment of the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act (the “Act”) in June 2023. In this Law-Now, with the end-of-2023 sunsetting deadline just having passed (and even as the President of the European Commission publicly invites the younger generation to “fix” the UK’s departure from the EU), we briefly look at what has and has not changed since our previous...

    Newcomer Injunctions: new Supreme Court decision

    This recent decision gives comfort to a number of companies and other entities, particularly in the Energy sector, who have obtained similar injunctions: Wolverhampton City Council and others v London Gypsies and Travellers.Whilst this case related specifically to injunctions obtained by various Councils in relation to traveller encampments, the decision is more far reaching.  This is as a result of the rise of the use of similar injunctions against so called “newcomers” in relation to areas as diverse as environmental protests, breaches of intellectual property rights and unlawful...

    High Court Dismisses Greenpeace and Uplift’s Judicial Review Claim Against 33rd Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round

    The High Court in London has handed down a judgment dismissing Greenpeace and Uplift’s judicial review challenge against the North Sea Transition Authority’s (the “ NSTA ”) 33rd Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round (the “ Licensing Round ”).BackgroundFollowing the NSTA’s launch of the Licensing Round in October 2022, it was reported that several climate campaign groups had each written to the Business Secretary, Grant Shapps, contesting that the Licensing Round was unlawful, and were calling for the decision (taken by his predecessor Jacob Rees-Mogg) to...

    OEUK Decommissioning Security Agreements – Ap­pro­val/Ob­je­c­tion of Proposed Plan

    As discussed in our previous Law Now (see our OEUK Decommissioning Security Agreements – the Proposed Plan Law Now here), Offshore Energies UK (OEUK) has published two template Decommissioning Security Agreements (DSAs); one for use in relation to PRT (Petroleum Revenue Tax) paying fields (the “PRT DSA”) and another for all other circumstances (the “non-PRT DSA”) – other than in relation to their treatment of PRT, these are in identical terms, and are collectively referred to in this article as the OEUK DSA for ease of reference. These template DSAs provide a...

    North Sea Transition Authority exercises revocation powers in relation to offshore licences

    Since its inception the NSTA has highlighted the importance of “right assets, right hands” i.e. of ensuring that offshore petroleum licences are held by the right companies to ensure their development, production and management in compliance with good practice and the “MERUK” (maximising economic recovery) regulatory regime. In the last year we have seen the NSTA increase its focus on the corporate governance of the companies it regulates, and on ensuring compliance with licence terms and timeframes.  It has introduced new requirements in the NSTA Strategy and in its...
