You can reduce your petrol and/or diesel bills by using a “sugar tax” to curb the amount you spend.
But the rules are complicated and there are no rules to guide you.
You can apply for a “dredged pipeline light” (DPL), which will be built and operated to remove a floating pipe from a floating dam, and then use a “drilling permit” to drill a pipeline from the same location.
The process takes between two and four years and costs about $50,000 per unit of oil.
You then need to apply for and receive a permit to drill the pipe.
This process takes up to five years and requires approval from the Federal Environment Minister, but it does not require a licence from the state or territory.
A DPL is not necessarily a cheap way to reduce your gas and diesel bills.
Some estimates suggest that a DPL can cost as much as $100,000 a year.
“The DPL has some problems,” said Richard Smith, senior vice-president at consulting firm Strategic Resources Group.
“Some states and territories have licences but they are only for the most remote locations, like the Arctic Ocean.” “
You also need to have a “stakeholder agreement” with the pipeline company to apply to a DLL, which requires that you agree that the pipeline will be safe and efficient and that the company has “adequate and reliable infrastructure” for the pipeline. “

“If you have a DFL, you don`t need to follow the regulations,” Smith said.
“You can drill without a licence.”
Some DPLs have been successfully applied for in NSW, Queensland and Victoria.
However, the majority of DPL applications have been rejected.
The main problems with DPL DPL operators have to do with the process.
There are two main hurdles that must be cleared before a DEDL can be approved.
Firstly, you must obtain an exemption from the Australian Environmental Protection and Enhancement Authority (AEPA), a federal regulatory body that administers a wide range of environmental laws.
The company must then submit a report to the authority that describes the process they used to get the permit.
The EEA does not have a list of the “approved” DPL’s.
It is not clear if the company must do this or if they can do it independently.
Secondly, the company that is going to build the DPL must get a licence in each state and territory.
It will be a requirement to be able “to operate, maintain and maintain the pipeline under the same licence and conditions as the existing licence holder”.
In most cases, this means that the DFL must have “good” regulatory compliance.
It also means that you must have an “equitable” relationship with the operator.
You also have to get permission from the federal regulator for the “development of the pipeline”.
The first part of this requires that the federal government gives the state/territory a written guarantee that the project will be “in the national interest”.
This is a “good reason” for a DDL to be approved by the EEA, Smith said, but “there are many exceptions to this.”
The second part of the process is to seek a “special approval” from the EDA.
“For a pipeline to be deemed ‘special’ it must meet a set of criteria, including the level of economic benefit that can be expected from the proposed development,” he said.
The final step is to apply with the ECA to be allowed to apply under the DDL.
The application process can take up to six months, and usually involves “hundreds of documents” and “examinations of the applicant”.
“If the application process fails, the applicant will be required to appear before the ELA for further review and an appeal,” Smith explained.
The state and/ or territory regulator will then make an assessment of the project and whether or not it meets the “special needs” of the state and region.
Once this is done, the EAA will issue a “declaration of non-compliance”.
It will then issue an “order requiring the applicant to pay the prescribed fees”.
“The applicant can also request a further assessment of whether the proposed project is in the national interests,” Smith added.
A “special permit” can be issued by the federal Environmental Protection Authority for a pipeline project if the “applicant has good commercial and/, financial and regulatory compliance” in the area where it is operating.
“This will enable the applicant not to be required by the licence holder to pay fees for the project until the permit expires,” Smith advised.
A licence is a licence, but Smith
