Timing of Equinor environment plan decision

News announcement - Published 3 December, 2019

On 2 December 2019, NOPSEMA announced the next decision point in its assessment of Equinor’s environment plan is scheduled to occur by 30 December 2019. This is a statutory timeframe, set 30 days following the resubmission of the environment plan by Equinor on 29 November 2019. NOPSEMA is able to make assessment decisions prior to this or it may extend the assessment period if additional time is required.

In recognition of community interest and the upcoming holiday season, NOPSEMA will not be making announcements associated with the Equinor environment plan during the period 21 December 2019 – 5 January 2020.
