Review ESIA gas/liquid project, Senegal
The Senegalese environmental agency DEEC is currently reviewing an ESIA for a gas to liquid project. This project is planned offshore, near the Mauritanian border. Particular concerns about this project are the potential impacts on fisheries, biodiversity and coastal erosion. DEEC recently requested the NCEA to carry out an independent review of this ESIA. The NCEA’s advice will inform the upcoming public hearing and a meeting validating the ESIA. Our advice will also inform an ongoing SEA for the off shore gas and oil sector.
