ESIA Study for Africa Oil Ethiopia Hamessa 1 Exploratory Drilling

TS Environment has conducted ESIA study for exploratory drilling project, along the western shore of Lake Abaya in the rift basin area block for Africa Oil Ethiopia. The Main activities of the proposed ESIA Includes;

  • Preparation of the access roads to drilling site
  • Preparation of the rig sites and rig camp sites
  • Running rig camps to accommodate the rig crews
  • Mobilization of drilling rig and rig crew to drilling locations
  • Rigging up the drilling rig and drilling the wells
  • Well testing and well suspension
  • Waste disposal
  • Well abandonment, rigging down the drilling rig and restoration of the drilling location

RBS and Hydrology Baseline Assessment for Africa Oil Ethiopia

A rapid biodiversity assessment was made on July 2017 by TS Environment at sites G1, G2 and A2 of the African Oil Ethiopia (AOE) project site around Lake Abaya. The assessment was done with the aid of aerial reconnaissance with ground survey crew for ground-truthing. The Main activities of the proposed RBS and Hydrology Baseline Assessment Included;

  • To assess  some biodiversity attributes and ecosystem services of the project sites A2, G1-G2 and determine any potential risks and impacts that drilling operation may have on ecosystem structure and services;
  • To observe the human settlement and bio-physical characteristics of the project sites from the air and on ground and assess natural, modified and critical habitats; and
  • To point out possible issues for scoping and ESIA.
