Ease of doing business is one of the focus areas of the government in Exploration and Production (E&P) sector with the objective to increase investments and production. Simplification of procedures and processes makes the system transparent and faster which facilitate investments in the sector.
A review of the processes for various approvals and submission of documents under Production Sharing Contracts (PSC), under NELP/Pre-NELP has been undertaken. The documents are submitted to Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH) and/or Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoPNG). To facilitate Ease of Doing Business, government rationalized 18 processes in 3 categories required during the life cycle of Exploration and Development of a block under PSC contract.
|#||Type||No. of Processes||Approval Definition|
|1||Category A||9||Processes where documents shall be accepted on self-certification basis and no approval is required.|
|2||Category B||3||Processes where approval will be deemed on expiry of 30 days of submission of documents under self-certification.|
|3||Category C||6||Processes where approvals shall be required under the Acts/Rules or Contracts.|
To facilitate queries for Self-certification processes, a Facilitation Helpdesk has been set up at DGH. Please share your queries/feedback with us.
