Equinor's announcement to halt plans for exploratory drilling in Great Australian Bight

Media release - Published 25 February, 2020

NOPSEMA acknowledges the announcement by Equinor that it will not be progressing with its proposal to carry out exploratory drilling in the Great Australian Bight.

The decision by Equinor to discontinue with plans to drill exploration wells is a decision for the company, and questions regarding the decision should be addressed to Equinor.

On 18 December, 2019, NOPSEMA accepted Equinor's environment plan for petroleum drilling in the Great Australian Bight. The environment plan remains in force until Equinor formally advises NOPSEMA that it is ceasing operations under the plan.
