Workshop on EIA for oil and gas in Myanmar

april 2015 - workshop myanmar

The NCEA contributed to a training workshop on EIA in the oil and gas sector in Myanmar. The workshop was held on 23-25 March and targeted government staff, consultants and NGOs. It was organized by the Government of Norway, on request of the Ministry of Environment of Myanmar. The workshop is a step in the trajectory towards sustainable oil and gas exploration and production in offshore fields for which concessions were given last year. EIAs will have to be conducted for these developments. The preparation of an SEA for planning of oil and gas developments is also considered.
