Now that both Australis and government have agreed that indeed an Environmental Impact Assessment is required for the two "fracking" exploration wells that they plan to drill early in 2019, and have called for comments on their proposed environmental reporting process, we have compiled a set of 5 guides to assist you. This guide is the last one in the set. This public consultation closes on the 27 November 2018. We extend an invite for you to take the time to participate.

In this basic guide we attempt to explain what are "Substantive" Environment Impact Comments, and why they are important in any environment impacts public consultation process.

Both European as well as Portuguese laws indicate the need for an Environmental Impact Assessment for specific type projects. Although the Portuguese government tried hard to by-pass the requirements for an EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) for oil & gas exploration "Fracking" projects, the fact is that they are now complying.

Yes, you can indeed, raise any issue under the sun with no supportive evidence during an EIA public request for comments. However, your comment will carry much more weight (and not risk landing up in file 13 – i.e. the rubbish bin) if your comment is supported by evidence or facts.

Rather than making generalized statements about how the project will affect you, your community, or the surrounding environment, your comments will be more effective if they specify provisions of domestic laws and regulations that the EIA or proposed project violate.

Um furo para pesquisa de gás natural em Aljubarrota, e outro em Bajouca, implica “um processo formal de avaliação de impacto ambiental”, no respeito pelo “espírito da legislação” em vigor, nomeadamente a lei 37/2017, que torna obrigatória a avaliação de impacte ambiental nas operações de prospeção, pesquisa e extração de hidrocarbonetos.

A concessão de direitos de prospeção, pesquisa, exploração e produção de petróleo e gás natural nas áreas de Batalha e Pombal: o secretismo, o negacionismo, o erro, as contradições, equívocos jurídicos e omissões.

O anterior Governo de Portugal celebrou a galope com uma empresa australiana, no dia 30 de Setembro de 2015 (a quatro escassos dias das últimas eleições legislativas), dois contratos para a concessão de direitos de prospeção e de pesquisa, desenvolvimento e produção de petróleo e gás, através do processo de “fracking” ou fratura hidráulica, numa zona que abrange os concelhos de Pombal, Soure, Leiria, Marinha Grande, Batalha, Nazaré, Alcobaça, Porto de Mós, Caldas da Rainha, Ourém, Rio Maior e Santarém.
