Vast quantities of gas and oil resources are in the process of being discovered under Portuguese waters. The government and executives of oil and gas companies, which includes such names as Repsol, Galp and Partex (an offshore company owned by the Portuguese Gulbenkian Foundation) have been telling us how great this will be for the country. But will it?
Here you find answers to some of the questions that we are asked on a regular basis. These should assist you in deciding for yourself whether you are pro or anti oil drilling in our offshore in the Algarve basin and Alentejo basin, by Repsol /Partex (Gulbenkian Foundation), by GALP/ENI or by Kosmos Energy or any other company that our blinded government deems worthy of an offshore license to drill for oil and gas. Although in this article we focus on Repsol /Partex concessions mainly.
