Australia Rejects BP´s Drilling Plan


Australia´s oil and gas regulator rejected BP´s proposal to drill in the Great Australian Bight.

The British energy company intended to drill four exploration wells in the offshore area next year. The National Offshore Petroleum and Environment Management Authority, however, said the environmental plan didn´t meet regulatory requirements.

"After a thorough and rigorous assessment, NOPSEMA has determined that the environment plan does not yet meet the criteria for acceptance under the environment regulations, and has advised BP of this decision," the regulator explained.
