Environmental and Social Impact Assessment of the Block 11 (Cyprus) Offshore Exploration Drilling of Total Exploration and Production Cyprus BV was submitted to the Environment Department

The Environmental and Social Impact Assessment of the Block 11 (Cyprus) Offshore Exploration Drilling of Total Exploration and Production Cyprus BV was submitted to the Environment Department. I.A.CO Ltd was subcontracted by RSK Environmental Ltd to contribute to the ESIA.

Total Exploration & Production Cyprus B.V. (TEP Cyprus) intends to carry out an offshore exploration drilling campaign in Block 11 of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the Republic of Cyprus. The proposed campaign comprises drilling of one exploration well and one (optional - if the results of the exploration well are positive) appraisal well, along with associated support activities. The exploration well, Onesiphoros West-1 (OW-1), will be a vertical well in 1,698 m of water. The target reservoir (gas) is in the Miocene strata at -4,250 m true vertical depth / mean sea level (TVD/MSL). Drilling operations will be supported from a logistics base within Limassol Port, whose facilities include: pipe yard, warehousing, jetty, drilling fluids mixing plant and drilling fluids storage, areas for offices, vehicles, marshalling, cargo containers, waste transfer and transit (no waste treatment). The logistics base will be located on existing available port facilities.

An ESIA study was elaborated for the Block 11 Offshore Exploration Drilling (both routine activities and unplanned/accidental events).
