News announcement - Published 12 July, 2016

On 16 May 2016, NOPSEMA provided BP an opportunity to modify and resubmit their environment plan for exploration drilling in the Great Australian Bight. On 12 July, NOPSEMA granted BP’s request for an extension of the timeframe for resubmission so they may address the matters raised by NOPSEMA in the assessment. The modified plan is now expected to be resubmitted by 31 August, at which time NOPSEMA will recommence the assessment.
