Greenpeace says Eni drilling project off Agrigento dangerous


Rome, June 18 - A drilling project in the Strait of
Sicily has been inadequately prepared and would endanger fish
and migratory birds, environmental activist Greenpeace charged
In a presentation to the environment ministry, Greenpeace
said that the project proposed by energy giant Eni off the coast
between Agrigento and Licata would harm the regional fishing
And it said that Eni hasn't conducted adequate
environmental assessments or considered contingency plans in
case of an accident.
"Eni intends to drill to a depth of over 700 meters, about
30 kilometres off the Agrigento coast without even evaluating
the effects of a possible major accident on the marine ecosystem
and the area fishing activities," Greenpeace said.
It would be "outrageous" if the Italian government were to
approve the drilling plan, given its flaws and omissions, added
Giorgia Monti, manager for the Greenpeace Sea campaign.
"It's time decide to protect the real resources of the sea,
its biodiversity and fish stocks, a real source of income for
local communities, instead of (giving way) to the oil barons".
