PALP extends GALP-ENI licence to drill by a further 3 months to April 2019

ASMAA - Algarve Surf and Marine Activities Association

Feb 26, 2018 — In one simple legal move, GALP-ENI not only got rid of PALP’s legal action, it now has until April 2019 to start drilling, which it can do the moment its EIA is approved.

This means that the consortium now can drill without needing to go through the entire process of applying for a new TUPEM licence to enable them to drill during the timeframe of favourable technical conditions in 2019.

The anti-oil drilling campaigners did not win, PALP did not win, we all lost through the very clever legal outmanoeuvring of PALP by GALP-ENI’s legal and executive team with the cumplicity of our government.

Is this the end?

Not at all. We at ASMAA are still here and ready to have our day in court. We see this only as losing a small battle in the larger war.

A luta continua!

All you need then its just a few hours a week of your time.

You can read how easy it is here.
