AIMPE response to Esso's Bass Strait Offshore Decommissioning Plan 

(uploaded 29 08 22)

AIMPE has lodged a submission with NOPSEMA in response to the Decommissioning Plan proposed by Esso for the Halibut, Fortescue, Cobia, Mackerel, Kingfish A, Kingfish B, West Kingfish, Flounder platforms.

AIMPE has urged NOPSEMA to reject Esso’s proposal to cut the eight deep water structures covered in this EP at 55 meters below sea level, and to leave up to 5m of the two shallower-water structures in place. AIMPE along with other interested unions has called on NOPSEMA to ensure that Esso complies with their obligations to remove all of its disused offshore oil and gas infrastructure, as per the OPGGS Act.

Leaving infrastructure in place would set an inappropriate and potentially dangerous precedent for the rest of Esso’s decommissioning campaign, and for other Australian decommissioning projects. A copy of the full submission can be read using the following link:
