Notification of Abandonment of Tank - Northern Territory


You must notify the agency if you are in control or management of an underground, partially underground or fully mounded tank that was used to store flammable gases/liquids, which:

  • has not been used in the past 2 years
  • has ceased operation and will not be used to store flammable gases/liquids in the future.

The tank/storage system must be:

  • removed, if reasonably practicable
  • made safe with no risk to health and safety, if removal is not reasonably practicable.

It may be impractical to remove a tank due to the proximity to surrounding structures or there is pipe work above an underground tank.
