Is there oil in the Great Australian Bight? Possibly. Can we find out safely? Absolutely.
We’ve listened and learned. We know how much the Great Australian Bight matters to you. It could also be one of Australia’s largest untapped oil reserves. We have submitted our Environment Plan to NOPSEMA, showing how we can explore safely the Bight, and it is currently being assessed.
On June 27, 2019, NOPSEMA requested additional information on our Environment Plan. On September 18, Equinor provided further information, and in accordance with the Environment Regulations, NOPSEMA has now resumed its assessment of our environment plan.
