Australia's National Offshore Oil Safety and Environment Management Authority (NOPSEMA) has requested additional information from the Norwegian company Equinor on its environmental plan for oil exploration activity in the Great Australian Bay.

With the measure, the evaluation that had begun was interrupted so that the company could send the requested information within a period of 60 days. NOPSEMA technicians identified issues not answered by Equinor in the document under consideration.

The agency said it could not give details of what additional data was requested and stressed that its role is to prevent major accidents, ensure worker safety, and protect the environment.
