On 21 December 2018, the Portuguese parliament voted on proposals submitted by three political parties – The Bloco de Esquerda (Left Block), PAN and the Greens. It is interesting to note that only the proposal by the Greens (PEV) was approved, with the other two rejected. Let’s now look at what was proposed in more detail.
Agora que tanto a Australis como o governo concordaram que, de fato, um Estudo de Impacto Ambiental é necessário para os dois poços de exploração que a Australis planeja perfurar no início de 2019 em Aljubarrota e em Bajouca, foi feito novamente uma consulta pública. Neste momento a Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente está a convidar comentários sobre os propostos estudos de impacto ambiental.
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.
