We would like to share with all of you, and in plain language, the legal process in Portugal relating to court injunctions (urgent applications / providências cautelares) and court applications against oil companies and the government.

Gostaríamos de dar o nosso contributo, tentando numa linguagem menos formal, clarificar, alguns institutos que nos parece, que poderão ajudar-nos a todos, a compreender, este processo.

After a nail-biting two weeks, in which so many things have been happening at the same time in the offshore oil-drilling environment in Europe and in which ENI was playing a leading role, the unbelievable happened: PALP, on Friday, 23 February, extended GALP-ENI’s TUPEM licence to drill of the coast of Aljezur by a further three months?

A ENMC divulga o "Relatório da Situação pormenorizada dos contratos de concessão em vigor para prospeção, pesquisa, desenvolvimento e produção de petróleo.
O Governo deu “luz verde” à prorrogação, por um ano, do período inicial de prospecção e pesquisa de petróleo na bacia do Alentejo, por considerar que o atraso na operação não é da responsabilidade do consórcio que integra a Galp.

A notice that Turkish ships threatened to sink ENI's drill ship SAIPEM 12000, was in our opinion a missed opportunity to do some good for Portugal. Had it happened it would have really put a halt to ENI's attempt to drill our beautiful coast. At least for a while ... as it stands, the threat that the Saipem 12000 will be in Portuguese waters shortly is very real.

The Saipem 12000 Drillship three support vessels will carry out loading and unloading in the next three to four days as the drillship has anchored in international waters, about 17 nautical miles southeast of the port of Limassol.

On friday the long awaited news that the Saipem would be leaving, was confirmed. The Saipem 12000 will drill elsewhere says Cypriot minister. Now the real question is if it will go to Morocco or will come to the Alentejo Basin in the south of Portugal. We will just have to wait and see.

The SAIPEM 12000 drilling ship from Italian energy company ENI is preparing to depart the “Supa” target in sea block 3 of the Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone and sail for Morocco or will it sail to the Alentejo Basin?

Foi com abismação que ficamos a saber que no dia 1 de fevereiro de 2018, Ruben Eiras tomou posse como Diretor-Geral de Política do Mar. Mas quem é este Ruben Eiras?

Cyprus was taking all necessary diplomatic steps to resolve peacefully the harassment of ENI’s drillship Saipem 12000 by Turkish warships and avoid an escalation, President Nicos Anastasiades  said on Sunday.

Turkey on Tuesday issued a new Navtex, or notice to mariners, effectively extending a blockade that prevents offshore drilling for natural gas by Italian energy firm ENI inside the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

The Republic of Cyprus is expected to lodge a protest with the United Nations over moves by Turkey to prevent an Italian vessel from exploring for gas in the eastern Mediterranean. 

Groningen has been one of Europe’s richest gas fields for 30 years, and thousands of people say their homes have been damaged by the tremors that drilling sets off. Now a class action may finally bring them compensation – and force a rethink of European energy security.
