The Fight for the Bight
just got real.
Equinor has once again been forced to resubmit their plan to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. They have until November 29 to do so. The exploratory well, due to be drilled next year, will be the deepest offshore well in Australian waters and one of the most remote in the world. It is frontier drilling and there are no guarantees it can be done safely. Drilling this well will cross a line in the sand with not just those in coastal communities but all Australians.
