AFANT was recently asked to comment on the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) proposed changes to its policy and guidance on environmental management consultation and decision-making processes. AFANT believes that significant improvements are needed in stakeholder engagement and consultation to ensure an adequate level of trust is established around the transparency of environmental management for the offshore petroleum industry.
