Environmental Protection Agency


Notice to the Public

 

The Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MoPI), Government of Guyana, has submitted an application to the Environmental Protection Agency for Environmental Authorisation, to undertake the construction of East Bank-East Coast Road Linkage Project (Green Field East Bank- East Coast Road Alignment).

The Main Green field alignment starts from the East Coast Road (Rupert Craig Highway) and ends at the connector of extension of Great Diamond road with East Bank Public Road (Approximately 15 Km). The Main alignment passes through Ogle Airstrip Road (an existing roadway) of length approximately 1.3 km, and then leads to Green Field, an area that comprises primarily sugar cane fields with many canals along and across it. An aggregate length of approximately 9.62 km of connector/bypass roads is also expected to be constructed. The proposed locations for these connector/ bypass roads bypass roads are as follows: the first connector is Aubrey Barker Road, the second connector is Haags Bosch Road, the third connector is Mocha Arcadia Road, and the fourth is Great Diamond Road.

In keeping with the Environmental Protection Act, Cap. 20:05, Laws of Guyana, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required before any decision to approve or reject this proposed project is taken, since this development may have significant impacts on the environment.

Members of the public are hereby invited, within twenty-eight (28) days of this Notice, to make written submissions to the Agency, setting out those questions and matters which they require to be answered or considered in the Environmental Impact Assessment.

Notice to the Public

APPROVAL OF LIZA 2 EIA

In accordance with the Environmental Protection Act, Cap. 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency is required to publish its decision and the grounds on which the decision is made for Projects that were required to conduct Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs).

The Agency has approved the Final Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report for the EEPGL LIZA Phase 2 Project – Development of Production Facilities in the Stabroek License Area, Offshore Guyana. This decision was based on the Agency being satisfied that the EIA conforms to the relevant local and international guidelines and policies to ensure sound environmental management for this specific project. The Agency also considered and found the proposed measures in the EIA and Environmental Management Plan reasonable to protect human health and environment.

The Agency’s decision to approve the Liza Phase 2 Project was made on completion of Environmental Impact Assessment process and taking into account comments from independent, public and stakeholder reviews as well as responses to these comments by the EIA Consultants.

The Liza Phase 2 Project will be undertaken in the marine offshore environment, approximately 190 km (north of Georgetown), and will include land-based support facilities such as pipe yards and bonds, drilling of subsea development wells and use of up to two drill ships. A floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) will be moored and connected to the wells for production and will have the capacity to produce approximately 190,000 - 220, 000 barrels of oil per day. Produced oil will be offloaded and transported to buyers via oil tankers.

Printed copies of the Final EIA Report for the Liza Phase 2 Project are available for perusal at all Regional Offices and the National Library. An electronic copy of the EIA Report can be obtained from the EPA’s Office, Ganges St., Sophia, Georgetown, or downloaded here from the EPA’s website.
