OPINION BY LAURINDA SEABRA I must say that when I first heard about the Gulbenkian Foundation, I was 10 years old and had just been exposed to their arts program. Since then I have been following “on-and-off” many of their initiatives. Like many others all over the world, I saw…

With the news that sceismic surveys will once again take place in theAlgarve Basin later this year, the local fishing community in the Algarve does not want to hear about meagre not to mention vague mentions of possible compensation for their financial hardships resulting from activities of the oil and…
Dear friends After the confirmation by Repsol’s President on a press release on 9 July 2014, that the oil and gas exploration of Algarve offshore is going ahead, we have to ask:
On Monday 23 May 2016, at 22h00 RTP1 run a live public debate about the controversy that the proposed oil and gas exploration has raised in the Algarve, with first exploration wells due to be drilled in October by the consortium Repsol/Partex (Gulbenkian Foundation) and at a date to be…
Let's look at this oil exploration in Portugal issue in context because it appears there's lots of confusion. There's the belief that the Portuguese government can just with a simple gesture cancel all oil and gas exploration contracts in Portugal. Nothing could be further from the truth. The situation is…
The consortium Galp/ENI has requested from DGRM authorization to drill an exploration well starting on 1 July 2016 at approximately 46,5Km from the Aljezur shore and at about 1070 metres.
There’s been so much confusion over what took place in the Portuguese Parliament on Friday when the oil & gas exploration saga came-up for voting, that we feel it’s important to clarify what really took place.
Scientists fear that even before one of the last frontiers of exploration, the ocean deep, has been properly studied it will already have been exploited by commercial deep-sea mining looking for rare metal and minerals on the ocean floor, leaving its unique ecosystems badly damaged.
What is your opinion? Should petition signatories have the right to expect written replies from Minister of Sea and the DGRM on the GALP/ENI TUPEM license objection petition? Give us your point of view ... and let us know if you agree with our request.
