Infrastructure Code of Practice (ICOP) and accompanying guidance notes


This non-statutory Code of Practice sets out principles and procedures to guide all those involved in negotiating third-party access to oil and gas infrastructure on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS). The purpose of the Infrastructure Code of Practice is to facilitate infrastructure use for the development of remaining UKCS reserves through timely agreements on fair and reasonable terms, where risks taken are reflected by rewards. Guidance to this Code has also been developed by Oil & Gas UK through a broad industry working group.
