Rules in terms of Petroleum Pipelines Act, 2003 (Act no. 60 of 2003)

In terms of section 33(3) (c), (d), (e) and (f) of the Petroleum Pipelines Act, 2003 (Act no. 60 of 2003) the National Energy Regulator (NERSA) drafted Rules which will affect licence applications falling under this Act. Stakeholders were invited to comment on the draft Rules. These comments have been considered by NERSA and this is reflected in the document “Table of Comments on Petroleum Pipelines Act Rules, Part One: Licensing 2006”.

As a result of inter alia the comments received, the draft Rules were updated. This is reflected in the document “Petroleum Pipelines Act Rules, Part One: Licensing 2006”. Please note that this document may be amended once the Petroleum Pipeline Regulations, to be issued by the Minister of Minerals and Energy, are finalized. Applications for licences should be based on these Rules made by the Regulator and approved at its meeting on 23 March 2006. These Rules will be known as “Petroleum Pipelines Act Rules, Part One: Licensing 2006”.
