Next Steps

As outlined in the Consultation Overview documents, the two Petroleum Licence Applications were subject to public consultation with a view to informing a recommendation to a future Minister as to whether or not a Petroleum Licence should be awarded to the applicant company. The consultation responses raise numerous issues which the Department needs to consider in detail in order to be able to provide advice to a Minister in due course.
