This Revised Environment Plan is for the Crowes Foot marine seismic survey, which was undertaken by Origin Energy Resources Limited (Origin) from 6 November to 7 December 2016. The original Environment Plan for the survey was approved by NOPSEMA on 4 November 2015. The Revised Environment Plan addresses the findings of recently completed research undertaken by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation, as well as longer-term management controls and monitoring. The marine seismic survey is now complete.
The Crowes Foot three-dimensional (3D) marine seismic survey was located in the Otway Basin off southwest Victoria in exploration permits Vic/P69 and Vic/P43. The survey by Origin was a typical 3D survey similar to most others conducted in Australian marine waters (in terms of technical methods and procedures). No unique or unusual equipment or operations were used.
