More than a thousand oil and gas wells off the Australian coastline are nearing the end of their lives. Once they're decommissioned, it'll fall to the extractive industries to foot the $50 billion clean-up bill. There is a cheaper alternative though: for half the price, they can leave everything more or less exactly where it is.
