2019 offshore acreage release: have your say
We are seeking your feedback on areas nominated by industry for inclusion in the 2019 Offshore Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release.
The areas nominated by industry won’t be endorsed by the government for inclusion in the acreage release until all submissions are considered.
The consultation process offers an opportunity for all interested parties to provide comments and feedback on the nominated areas, and highlight how stakeholders might be affected by exploration activities.
Consultation responses will also inform potential explorers of issues or concerns, which can then be taken into account when planning future exploration activities.
Provide your feedback on our consultation hub. The survey is open until 31 March 2019.
