The Decision-making Committee considering OMV GSB’s non-notified applications for marine consent and marine discharge consent has extended the time period in which to make its decision.
The decision on OMV GSB Limited’s non-notified applications for activities related to exploration and appraisal drilling for oil and gas in the Great South Basin was previously due by Monday 18 November. The decision is now due to be delivered to the Environmental Protection Authority by Tuesday 17 December.
The Decision-making Committee decided to extend the time period to ensure it is possible to consider all the information and prepare its decision.
Once the decision has been delivered to the EPA, it will be prepared for public release as soon as possible.
