147 - Recommended guidelines for Best Available Technique (BAT) assessments, Rev. 00
The guideline provides guidance for how to perform Best Available Technique (BAT) assessments for all relevant phases of offshore oil and gas (O&G) activity at the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS); project screening, FEED and detailed engineering, operations, modifications, and decommissioning. As part of BAT assessment of offshore O&G activity, value chain effects for onshore O&G facilities shall be addressed when relevant.
The guideline is not directly applicable for onshore O&G activity, as the requirements to BAT for onshore facilities deviate from offshore requirments. But, the general approach described in the guidline may be used by other sectors if found appropriate.
