So much clouding has been thrown about the date that ENI’s drilling ship Saipem will be allowed to enter Portuguese waters, and start drilling, that we at ASMAA feel its important to clarify a few issues and to place things in context.

In the past few weeks the government disinformation machine has been moving at full throttle. Let’s take a look at what is fiction (The Spin) and what is the hidden truth.

ASMAA announced today that they are contesting in court the decision taken by the Portuguese government to allow the drilling by ENI to proceed without an environmental impact assessment.

Since we can remember, many government representatives, starting with the Prime Minister Antonio Costa to the minister of the Sea, Ana Paula Vitorino, the likes of Minister of Environment, and many other less underlings continue with the same story line, that oil and gas exploration in Portugal is only “Pesquisa”, it is only "Exploration".

Na segunda-feira, 5 de março, a APA abriu um processo de consulta pública para avaliar os motivos e as motivações para que concedam ou rejeitem a necessidade de uma Avaliação de Impacto Ambiental para a perfuração de um furo na área de concessão de Santola na Baía do Alentejo. Esta consulta pública encerra em 16 de abril.

On Monday 5 March a public consultation process has been opened by APA to assess the grounds and motivations for them to grant or reject the need of an Environmental Impact Assessment for the drilling of one well in the Santola concession area in the Alentejo Bay. This public consultation closes on 16 April.
