BP response to Crude Accountability letter
Author: BP, Published on: 6 May 2019
...With regard to the three specific points raised in the Letter, we set out below further information to clarify BP’s approach...As part of BP’s Environmental Monitoring Programme in Azerbaijan we conduct routine monitoring around the Sangachal Terminal (ST) including monitoring of air quality, surface and groundwater and soil monitoring. The results are reported to the national regulator, Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, on an annual basis. We also present the results of our monitoring programmes to the communities around the ST during regular community updates and make them publicly available through presentation sessions and monitoring overview booklets...We remain committed to ensuring that the communities have access to relevant information on our environmental performance; a large amount of such information is currently publicly available, and much of it is published on our website in both Azerbaijani and English...We have processes and programmes in place to maintain effective and constructive engagement with our neighbouring communities...We have an established grievance resolution mechanism, which is available to third parties to raise concerns, including communities living in our neighbourhood...During the four-year construction period, the SD2 and SCPx projects received a total of 978 complaints within the grievance mechanism. Most of the complaints were related to crop compensation, property damage, land compensation, land boundaries and ownership. All complaints were taken seriously and properly answered in line with our approved mechanism and processes. As a result, all complaints submitted within our grievance mechanism have now been closed.
