A Review of EIA in Nigeria as Compared to Selected Standards From Countries And Agencies

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Risks of ill effects from hydrocarbon exploitation still remain an area of critical significance in the Niger Delta for the communities who are exposed to them. A recent United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) study concluded that ‘pollution of soil by petroleum hydrocarbons in Ogoni land is extensive in land areas, sediments and swampland. Most of the contamination is from crude oil although contamination by refined product was found at three locations’. It goes on to say that the control, maintenance and decommissioning of oilfield infrastructure in Ogoni land are inadequate. Industry best practices and their own procedures have…

CLIMATE CHANGE: Take action before the Niger Delta is submerged! | By NACGOND while marking the World Environment Day

This year’s World Environment Day has taken the theme, “Raise your voice not the sea level” with focus on Small Island Developing States (SIDS). It focuses critically on adaptation strategies for island areas or states that are vulnerable to climate change and its devastating effects. According to the Department for International Development (DIFD), the Niger Delta stands to lose over 15,000km2(75%) of land by the year 2050, with just a one meter rise in sea levels! In real terms this means that at least 80% of the people of the region will be displaced due to the low-lying level of…

The Nigeria Gas Industry and Processual Transparency: A Health Risk Perspective | By Rev. Fr. Edward Obi (MSP, PhD)

Preamble: As agreed, the theme of this Meeting is Climate Change and Environmental Justice, I would like to start from the most recent information I have got on the matter, and that comes from Shell’s Sustainability Report, published only this week. This report claims that more than one-third of the world’s CO2 emissions come from electricity generation. Natural gas produces around half of the GHG emissions compared to coal across its life cycle, from production through to use in generating electricity (Shell Sustainability Report, 2013, pg. 10). The authors of the Report therefore canvass “switching from coal to gas for…

Oil Spills in the Niger Delta: Reflections and Concerns on JIV and Community

Oil spillage, a common occurrence in the Nigerian oil industry is caused by factors ranging from equipment failure, corrosion, sabotage and human error. In Nigeria, there is a state policy on compensatory payments for damages caused by oil spills. A Joint Investigation Visit (JIV) is usually carried out to identify the cause of an oil spill, its impact and by extension value of damaged properties. Generally all JIVs conducted by oil companies have been without participatory involvement of civil societies until National Coalition on Oil Spill and Gas Flaring in the Niger Delta (NACGOND) commenced advocacy engagements with the oil…
