Reg. 12 Confirms that the grant of an easement over Crown Land for pipeline purposes is subject to native title considerations. Reg. 13 This regulation repeals Part IVA of the principal Act; a part which was inserted by the Amendment Act Rather then create a separate alternative process for dealing with pipeline applications, within the meaning of S.43A of the Native Title Act, it was considered more efficient to deal with all land tenure issues under the Lands Acquisition Act That is securing the necessary lease, easement or freehold could be done by agreement or by way of compulsory acquisition. This meant that the procedures for granting authority to investigate or to construct a pipeline could be accommodated under S.24MD (6A) of the Native Title Act and simplified. Reg. 14 Repeals the old compensation provision, it is now updated and dealt with elsewhere.
