Odemira welcomes the abandonment of the idea of ​​oil exploration at Aljezur



We recall that Galp CEO Carlos Gomes da Silva announced the decision to drop off the border research project in the Alentejo Basin on October 29 in a conference call with analysts. The ENI / GALP Consortium has decided to voluntarily waive the concession whose exploration contract was about 50 miles off the coast in January 2019, after three extensions of the deadline requested by the company without renewal.

"From
the first hour of the Chamber and the Municipal Assembly of Odemira
they took a unanimous position against oil exploration
on the southwest coast, condemning unmet acceptance
oils in front of a natural park, in the coastal zone
values ​​at European level with protected species
under Community directives and with very high protection
demanding for the population, "the local government said in a press release to be sent to our editorial office.
