Eni's response

[Eni's response to allegations of social & environmental damage in Nigeria’s Bayelsa state]. Eni continues to consider the interest of our host communities by taking responsibility for the impact of our activities on the people and the environment. Eni responds promptly to challenges arising from our activities and sees us voluntarily taking further steps to improve the quality of life for our host community and society at large...[Our] investigation revealed that the allegation of pollution and the resultant death of three children was spurious, as there was no evidence of pollution in the community as a result of NAOC’s rig operation neither was there any record of death due to NAOC’s activities in the community...As has been demonstrated, most of the spills in Ikarama are due to willful damage to oil facilities and the community sometimes creates impediments so as to exacerbate the spill situation. Whatever the cause of spill NAOC responds to the incidents in line with the applicable regulatory standards and industry best practice and in keeping with her commitment to protecting the environment where she operates.
