We are a niche environmental consultancy specialising in the preparation of upstream petroleum environmental approvals, compliance auditing and on-ground environmental management.


About Aventus Consulting


Aventus was established in 2009 and is based in Melbourne, Victoria. It is a niche environmental consultancy specialising in the preparation of upstream petroleum environmental approvals, compliance auditing and on-ground environmental management.


For many of Australia’s junior and mid-cap oil and gas explorers and producers, who cannot sustain a specialist staff-based environmental team for the larger operators requiring additional assistance, hiring Aventus presents the perfect solution for short-term requirements. Aventus is available for field assignment, in-house support, short-term or long-term project support.




Aventus puts the ‘E’ back into HSE!


In an industry heavily focused on the management of safety, it is all too common to find that health, safety and environment (HSE) professionals lack knowledge of the industry’s specific and ever-changing environmental requirements (research, practical or regulatory). Not only can this have environmental implications on the ground, it can also have serious impacts on an operator’s reputation, from a public and regulatory viewpoint, and potentially financially through fines issued for non-compliance or delays in obtaining project approvals.


Strict and ever-changing environmental legislation, regulations, policies and guidelines in the Commonwealth and State jurisdictions make obtaining approvals and complying with conditions on the ground increasingly difficult. While community expectations for high quality and transparent environmental management practices increases, so too does the demand for energy. Environmental management does not end once an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) document is approved by government. In fact, it’s just the start. Aventus can not only get you to that start line, but we will also guide you through to the finish.
