We Demand that the EU Investigates oil exploration contracts in Portugal

Why do we Demand that the EC Conducts an Investigation into the Contracts Awarded by the Portuguese Government to Repsol and Partex for the Lagosta and Lagostim Concessions

Late in July 2015 the Portuguese government published for the first time the concession contracts awarded for the exploration of offshore oil and gas in the Algarve Basin to the consortium Repsol/ Partex.

ASMAA’s had the contracts analyzed by legal experts.  After extensive discussions with the various legal advisers, we are of the opinion that there are grounds to request an investigation. This investigation is aimed at ascertaining and verifying if the contracts as they currently stand were not drafted as they are, with the intent to circumvent European laws and guidelines.

As a result, we will be submitting a written request to the Directorate of Energy in the European Union to investigate the contracts for any breaches.

In addition the Portuguese government is at fault by failing to transpose on 19 July 2015 into Portuguese law the European Directive for Offshore Oil & Gas Safety Directive (Directive 2013/30/EU. THIS HAS NOW BEEN DONE ON 9 MARCH 2016 - 9 MONTHS LATER.

If you support our application to the European Commission for Energy, we request that you sign the petition and add your voice to our submission.

Porquê exigimos que CE faça uma investigação aos contractos entre o Governo Português e a Repsol e Partex das concessões Lagosta e Logostim ?

No final de Julho 2015 o Governo Português publicou pela primeira vez os contractos de concessão para as explorações de petroleo e gáz Offshore na bacia do Algarve ao concorcio Repsol / Partex

A ASMAA encomendou uma analize dos referidos contractos a especialistas juridicos. Depois de extensivas discussões com os advogados, somos da opinião que há base para requerer uma investigação.

Esta investigação visa verificar se os contractos, como se apresentam, não foram redigidos com a intenção de contornar leis e directivas europeias.

Neste contexto, iremos submeter um requerimento ao Comissariado da Energia das Comunidades Europeias solicitando a investigação destes contractos.

Se concorda com este requerimento à Comissão Europeia, pedimos que assinem a petição juntando a sua voz à nossa.

Obrigada
A Equipa da ASMAA
