Front groups are not the only way in which corporate interests can be portrayed as coinciding with a greater public interest.

When a corporation wants to oppose environmental regulations, or support an environmentally damaging development, it may do so openly and in its own name. But it is far more effective to have a group of citizens or experts -- and preferably a coalition of such groups -- which can publicly promote the outcomes desired by the corporation while claiming to represent the public interest.

Tomorrow, 9 May, the Portuguese parliament is going to debate the proposal submitted by the Bloco de Esquerda and PAN, which if approved would see the end of all new oil and gas exploration concessions in Portugal. The proposal will then be voted after the debate in the parliamentary session.

Amanhã, terça-feira, dia 9 de Maio, o parlamento debaterá o projecto de Lei do PAN e do BE para o fim de novas concessões de hidrocarbonetos em Portugal (projecto que será votado nesse mesmo dia).

Todos os contratos para as concessões em terra e no mar na Bacia do Algarve estão neste momento cancelados. O próximo passo é o anulamento da liçenca de TUPEM emitida a favour da Galp/ENI para fazer o furo no mar em Aljezur.

An opinion by Laurinda Seabra, where she takes a look at the so called cancellation of of all oil and gas exploration contracts in the Algarve and the confusion it generated in the last few weeks ...

Yesterday (29 November 2016), we met with AMAL representatives - Jorge Botelho (AMAL President / Mayor of Tavira), José Amarelinho (AMAL Vice-President / Mayor of Aljezur), Miguel Relvas (AMAL Secretary), and AMAL legal team represented by João Vidal.

3 Dec 2015.  Antonio Costa e Silva fala sobre a COP21. Pena que palavras leva-as o vento ... para relembrar.

O presidente da Partex Oil & Gas, petrolífera da Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, aproveitou a conferência dos 30 anos do Instituto de Engenharia Mecânica e Gestão Industrial para desabafar acerca dos processos de petróleo e gás em Portugal.

O presidente executivo da Partex Oil and Gas afirmou hoje que «asfixiar» a exploração de gás natural no Algarve, projeto que tem em consórcio com a Repsol, mas está atualmente suspenso, é «asfixiar o futuro do mar em Portugal».
