Australia’s National Offshore Petroleum Safety & Environmental Management Authority has received more than 30,000 submissions regarding a proposed oil drilling program in the Great Australian Bight. Fortescue Metals Group founder Andrew Forrest is amongst those who oppose the drilling plans of Norway-based Equinor, due to the potential environmental impact on the Bight. Forrest’s Minderoo Foundation recently launched the Flourishing Oceans initiative.
