The regulatory requirements set out by the Kenya Environmental Management and Coordination Act (EMCA) 1999 and the Environmental (Impact Assessment and Audit) Regulations, June 2003, define different requirements for environmental impact assessment based on the sector, nature of the project and its likely environmental impacts. Specifically, a project proponent may be required to implement only an Environment Project Report (EPR) study or both an Environment Project Report (EPR) study and a detailed ESIA, the former being a precursor to the latter.
Tullow has developed block-wide Environmental Project Report Study for its’ seismic and drilling activities in Kenya. These documents should be available at the NEMA headquarters in Nairobi and a copy should be held at the respective County NEMA office. Tullow has also elected to disclose these documents through this page on the Group website.
