Transportation and disposal of water is maintained by a licensed company...In line with the RoK laws, the responsibility for compliance with regulatory requirements in performance of these activities is exclusively responsibility of the licensed company. Agip KCO carry out regular internal HSE inspections...[E]very vehicle leaving our area of competence for the water transportation has a supporting document, i.e. a Transportation Note, and is registered at a dedicated checkpoint. Volumes of transferred water are provided to the Operator as part of the monthly environmental reports.
