Understanding Petroleum Reservoirs: Towards an Integrated Reservoir Engineering and Geochemical Approach (Geological Society Special Publication No. 237)

Reservoir geochemistry can throw gentle at the starting place of petroleum reservoir fluid heterogeneities at a number of spatial and temporal scales. this data can be utilized to appreciate the formation and function of petroleum accumulations, and is a invaluable device for exploration, improvement and creation recommendations.

In a regime driven only by arbitrary exceedance of limit values for particular contaminants, the question of ‘standards’ for remediation would be conceptually quite simple. They could take the form of numerical target values for the same contaminants, set either at or below the triggering limit values. Leaving aside the difficulties of setting comprehensive limit values for all substances in all circumstances, what this approach also inevitably implies is that the only permissible approaches to remediation would be those that acted directly on the contaminants themselves.

This is then included on the enforcing authority’s register, not only to make sure that the information contained on the register is as comprehensive as possible, but in particular to ensure that there is transparency and accountability in the way this part of the regime operates. Local Authorities as Lead Regulators The main regulatory roles under Part IIA fall to local authorities. As the Environment Act 1995 which introduced Part IIA also created the Environment Agencies, there was clearly an opportunity to give this role to the these new Agencies.

There is a strict hierarchical relationship between these three elements, with the primary legislation at the top. The regulations and the guidance are issued under powers created by the primary legislation, and their scope is restricted to dealing with detailed issues specified by that legislation. Regulations and the guidance cannot contradict a provision of the primary legislation; nor can they create new provisions within the system as a whole for which the primary legislation does not provide specific legal powers, or vires.
