NOPSEMA extends decision timeframe for Equinor environment plan

News announcement - Published 17 May, 2019

NOPSEMA has advised Equinor that it is unable to make a decision on their environment plan for proposed exploration drilling in the Great Australian Bight within the initial 30 day assessment period.The next decision point is now scheduled for 27 June 2019.

The extension of time was taken in accordance with subregulation 10(1) of the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage (Environment) Regulations 2009, and is due to the size of the submission and complexity of the assessment.
