NorthWind and UiO (University of Oslo, Scandinavian Institute of Maritime Law) organised this seminar about regulating safety and working environment in renewable energy production at sea.
The Petroleum Safety Authority (Ptil) has been delegated the authority to draft and establish regulations in accordance with Section 5-1 of the Ocean Energy Act (preparedness, safety and working environment). There are discussions between Ptil and relevant parties regarding which main points should be covered by this regulation. A central question being examined is whether it is best to draw parallels with petroleum activities or land-based activities.
The speakers were:
- Hilda Kjeldstad, Head of regulatory development at Ptil
- Lars Ole Sikkeland, Senior environmental lawyer at Equinor
The moderator for the discussion was Prof. Dr. juris Knut Kaasen.
When: 31 January, 16:30-18:30
Where: Avdeling for energirett, Domus Media, Karl Johans gate 47, Oslo
