A dry hole

OMV's exploratory drilling in the Great South Basin has failed to find oil. Good. Firstly, because we can't afford to burn the oil and gas we've already found, so there's just no point looking for more. And secondly, because offshore, deep-water drilling poses a risk of an environmental catastrophe, which we're better off avoiding. But since they've failed to find anything, those risks will not eventuate.

Now if only they'd surrender their permits and fuck off back to Austria, rather than coming here to destroy our environment...
