Expiry of title

The expiry date of a GHG assessment permit is the day on which it ceases to be in force.The day that a title ceases to be in force will generally be the expiry date specified in the title instrument, but that date may be extended if, for example, the GHG titleholder has applied for a suspension of conditions and a decision from the responsible Commonwealth Minister is still pending or has applied for renewal of the title.

GHG titles may be cancelled where titleholders are not in compliance with the requirements of the title. Part 3.11 of the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 sets out the grounds and process for cancelling GHG titles.
