Greenpeace and the Green Party have condemned Austrian oil giant OMV after it announced plans to drill for oil and gas off the coast of Otago.

OMV New Zealand, a subsidiary of Austria's OMV Aktiengesellschaft, applied earlier this year for consent to bring a drilling rig into its Great South Basin permit, and the application has now been made public.

Greenpeace Climate Change Campaigner Amanda Larsson joined ryan Bridge on Magic Talk Drive to discuss her objections to the drilling and why Greenpeace New Zealand is fighting against the application.
