ESIA guidelines for oil & gas in Surinam

18 November 2019

In order to be effective, ESIA guidelines for a specific sector should be tailor made for a country's context. Therefore, NIMOS, the environmental authority in Suriname, requested the NCEA to assist them with  the preparation of ESIA guidelines for their offshore oil and gas sector. In a 3-day workshop, supported by WWF Surinam, a first outline was discussed and elaborated with NIMOS staff members. NIMOS will draft a final version of the guidelines in early 2020, for further stakeholder consultation with a.o. government agencies, Staatsolie and oil & gas companies and their contractors.
