Decision looms on oil drill plan
A DECISION looms on a controversial plan to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight.
International energy company Equinor has exploration rights on a site about 370km off the South Australian coast.
It submitted an environmental plan to federal regulators in April but the National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority twice delayed a decision, calling on the company to provide more information. NOPSEMA’s ruling is now due on Thursday.
