NOPSEMA Requests Further Information from Equinor on Bight Drilling Proposal

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/27/2019, Location: Not categorized

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority (NOPSEMA) requested further information from Equinor on its environment plan for their proposed petroleum exploration drilling activity in the Great Australian Bight.

The assessment will now pause and recommence when Equinor submits the additional information. Equinor has been provided with 60 days to submit the requested information to NOPSEMA.

The request for information was made in order to clarify matters raised in the plan and to address information gaps identified by NOPSEMA’s specialist team assessing the plan.

Under Australia’s objective-based regulatory regime, a request for further information is a normal step in the assessment process.

To ensure a fair and unbiased process and to provide natural justice to all parties, NOPSEMA does not comment on the specifics of environment plans under assessment.

NOPSEMA’s primary role is the prevention of major accident events offshore, to ensure the safety of the workforce and protection of the environment.
