Description

Energean Oil and Gas intends to increase production from its Prinos concession area and has therefore initiated the Prinos Exploration Area field development project, comprising of two additional wellhead platforms with inter-connecting flow lines, and associated risers and topsides. For the exploitation of these two extra platforms, Energean should be granted from YPEKA (MoECCE) an environmental permit.  The platforms, named Lamda (for Epsilon field) and Omicron (for Prinos North field and others) will be situated about three kilometres to the west and two kilometres to the north of the existing Prinos Delta platform, respectively.

The objective of this assignment is the timely issuance of the approved Environmental Term for the Prinos new Development Project and the amendment of the existing approved Environmental Terms by the Greek Ministry of Environment Energy and Climate Change.

The consultant’s services are the preparation of an EIS study according to Ministerial Decision 170225 (Government Gazette B’ 135, 27.01.2014), Law 4014 (GG A’ 209, 21.09.2011), Ministerial Decision 1649/45 (GG B’ 45, 15.01.2014), Ministerial Decision 1958 (GG B’ 21, 13.01.2012), Law 855/1978 (GG A’ 235), and in accordance with all relevant and appropriate Greek Legislation and European Directives and Environmental Best Available Techniques.
