Australia: Equinor resubmits its environment plan for proposed drilling activity in the Great Australian Bight

02 Dec 2019

On 29 November 2019, Equinor resubmitted its environment plan for proposed drilling activity in the Great Australian Bight, following an opportunity to modify and resubmit as a standard component of the assessment process. In accordance with the Environment Regulations, NOPSEMA has resumed its assessment of Equinor’s environment plan.

The next decision point in the assessment process is scheduled to occur by 30 December 2019. Prior to this point, NOPSEMA will continue to assess the environment plan and consider potential environmental impacts from the proposed activity to ensure appropriate precautions are taken.

NOPSEMA can extend the timeframe of the assessment if additional time is required. NOPSEMA will only accept the environment plan once it meets the stringent requirements of the law.

For further information about Equinor’s proposed activity, including status updates see the Stromlo-1 exploration drilling program page.
