If the petroleum facility needs to be built on private land, you will need to negotiate with the landowner. These discussions will usually result in the creation of an easement on private land in return for some form of compensation.
If the landowner refuses to negotiate with you, or refuses you easement access, you can apply for a Part 5 permission (described at the end of this page).
You can apply for a petroleum facility licence electronically using the MyMinesOnline system on the Business Queensland website. Alternatively you may complete an application form and submit any attachments and the prescribed fee at a Mines lodgement office.
A petroleum facility licence cannot be granted until an environmental authority is issued. To obtain an environmental authority, contact the department. A security may be required, along with the first years licence fee for the petroleum facility licence.
