The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) has published all nine Asset Stewardship Implementation Guides. These documents provide further detail to assist operators and licensees in achieving the Asset Stewardship Expectations, published in 2016. Each includes the rationale, expected outcomes and a description of key elements or behaviours required to meet the expectations.
The Asset Stewardship Expectations are one element of the OGA’s Asset Stewardship Strategy, which in turn supports the Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) Strategy for the UK. These expectations are intended to provide further clarity on the MER UK Strategy obligations with the aim of encouraging enhanced stewardship and improved performance across the oil and gas lifecycle.
