NEW AND EMERGING ROLES OF CUSTOMS: CUSTOMS REGULATION OF OFFSHORE OIL AND GAS INSTALLATIONS
– 31st October 2012 – By Senior Lecturer Mikhail Kashubsky
In some countries, Customs administrations have a range of responsibilities relating to the offshore petroleum industry and offshore petroleum installations. In fact, depending on the country’s legal and administrative framework, offshore petroleum installations may fall under direct control of Customs, and Customs administrations can play important role in regulating offshore oil and gas installations and offshore activities. With the increasing number of offshore oil and gas platforms on the continental shelf areas around the world, their regulation is becoming a new area of responsibility for some Customs administrations, while Customs administrations or other border agencies that already have responsibilities in the regulation of the offshore petroleum industry may find that they have to devote more time and resources to it. This webinar will provide an overview of the practical and legal issues of Customs regulation of offshore petroleum installations focusing on Australian law and practice.
