Delivered

Dear National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority,
I am a Masters student at the University of Technology Sydney.
I am seeking a copy of the third Environmental Safety Plan for Drilling in the Great Australian Bight that BP submitted to NOPSEMA, and was setback in September 2016 by NOPSEMA.
I am also seeking any additional documents on BP's final plan to respond in the case of an uncontrolled blowout and whether they made reference to keeping a capping stack on call.

Yours faithfully,
Tahlia Kraefft
