Norweigan oil-giant Equinor’s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight have just been knocked back for a second time. In a statement released on November 11th, Australia’s offshore oil and gas authority NOPSEMA cited concerns with Equinor’s Environment Plan, giving Equinor 21 days to provide more detailed information.
Now - more than ever - is the time to keep the pressure on Equinor to ensure Big Oil stays out of the Bight. Here's how you can join the #Fightforthebight today!
Let Equinor know that their oil rigs aren't welcome in the Bight not now, and not ever.
