Equinor has released its Environment Plan ahead of drilling the first exploration well in more than 2000m in the Great Australian Bight. Plans to drill in the area has caused mass community outrage, with the Australian youth radio program Triple J running a story on the Issue. As part of the triple J Story, our very own professor Soliman Hunter was interviewed regarding the proposed drilling. Listen to the interview here.
