Cote d'Ivoire - Gas field expansion : Cote d'Ivoire - Gas field expansion - Projet de pose de pipelines traversant le Canal de Vridi : Etude d'impact environnemental et social (French)

The project scope includes: an existing operational production platform ; the construction and operation of a green field production platform ; drilling of 12 wells; existing and new installation of oil and gas pipelines and onshore facilities. This project presents potential significant adverse environmental and social impacts which may affect an area broader than the sites and/or facilities given its location near ecologically sensitive areas. The key environmental and social issues include: air quality and emissions, noise, management of drilling wastes and cuttings, oil spills, occupational health and safety, aquatic/benthic life disturbance (marine mammals and turtles), well blowout, community health and safety, accidental ruptures of pipelines, fishing activities, hazardous materials and waste management. These potential risks and impacts can be managed through mitigation measures like: workers will be required to wear personal protective equipment when performing hazardous tasks (ie steel toed boots, helmets, harnesses security, etc.); water consumption, and therefore the production of wastewater, will be minimized through conservation measures ; the components of the drilling fluids will be selected so that the discharges of mud or cuttings have a minimal impact on the environment ; low-toxicity oil will be used and the drill and cuttings will be drained and sieved using a process intended to recover the maximum amount of mineral oil prior to discharge into the ocean ; wastes will be segregated, stored in a dumptser and transferred from the platform to supply vessels for transport to onshore treatment and disposal facilities. Trash compactor and temporary waste storage facilities are planned. The project will have plans in place to manage risks associated with possible accidents during drilling and production. During operations daily maintenance inspections of the equipment will be made and equipment will be maintained. Procedures related to refueling, pipeline management, waste management will be implemented to ensure protection of the environment.
