Geothermal Operating Requirements

Operation Plan

An Operation Plan is required for all on site exploration and extraction activities. It is an all -encompassing document which outlines environment, resource and safety management issues. The Geothermal Energy Resources Regulations 2006 sets out the requirements of an Operation Plan. Contact the Approvals Team within Earth Resources Regulation about the requirements.

Submission requirements

All statutory documents must be submitted as early as possible, but at least 30 days before commencement of activities, to allow sufficient time for regulators to assess and resubmission of inadequate documents. All documents must be submitted electronically via RRAM.
