A borehole site means any site at which borehole operations:
- are going to be undertaken;
- are being undertaken; or
- have been undertaken and at which there is a borehole, whether partly drilled or completed, which has not been abandoned.
In the case of a site at which the first borehole is to be drilled, the site will become a borehole site as soon as the owner, as defined in these Regulations, decides that borehole operations are to be undertaken there. It will remain a borehole site until all boreholes on that site have been abandoned.
A borehole site may contain several boreholes and plant and equipment associated with the boreholes and borehole operations.
