Kangaroo Island Mayor urges Norwegian oil giant not to drill in Bight

Peter Clements.
The Turnbull Government has re-opened more of the Great Australian Bight to oil and gas drilling, citing fuel security as a key concern.

Kangaroo Island Mayor Peter Clements is so concerned about the move he travelled to Norway to tell the annual general meeting of that country's biggest oil and gas company Statoil what his community thinks of the plan.

Statoil has taken on leases in the Bight that were abandoned by BP in late 2016 and it plans to start drilling late next year.
