Federal Environment Agency-IBAMA
ANP-IBAMA Technical Cooperation Agreement
The definition of the basic requirements for the environmental licensing of seismic and drilling activities, in blocks offered in Brasil Round 5, is available. The objective of this work is to provide basic information on the environmental sensitivity of the Brazilian coastal and offshore zones to seismic and drilling activities, in order to aid the environmental licensing process.
The cartographic base is comprised of all the principal information on the environmental resources most susceptible to the actual and potential impact of seismic and drilling, and is based on the document “Evaluation and Priority Actions for the Conservation of the Biodiversity of the Coastal and Offshore Zones” (MMA - Ministry of the Environment - 2002). Integrated maps are included, associated to a general description, which identifies the basic requirements for licensing of activities in each block offered in Brasil Round 5.
The “Base Maps”, together with the requirements of the Terms of Reference issued by IBAMA, based on the environmental legislation in force, will support the preparation of Environmental Studies, and will allow the planning by the companies to be compatible with the environmental sensitivity of each area to be licensed and the deadline of the Exploration Phase. The prior establishment of the required scope is intended for the implementation of pro-active measures by the companies.
