Storing baseline assessment information

The Water Act 2000 requires baseline assessments to be completed for water bores in areas where petroleum and gas production testing or production has commenced. Assessments are required to assist the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP), petroleum tenure holders and landholders with potential future 'make good' arrangements.

EHP is responsible for regulating the baseline assessment process and has published a Baseline Assessment Guideline (PDF) and related Outcome of Baseline Assessment Form (Word).

The Office of Groundwater Impact Assessment (OGIA) stores baseline assessment information. Petroleum tenure holders submit this information to OGIA in accordance with the guideline and in the approved form.

OGIA uses baseline assessment information as part of undertaking its groundwater impact assessment role, including for the preparation of underground water impact reports.

Information for petroleum tenure holders submitting baseline assessments

OGIA has prepared the following documentation to support petroleum tenure holders in submitting baseline assessment information.
