Administrative Problems Slow Repsol’s Pipeline Project At A Coruña Port

A Coruña, Spain (PortSEurope) February 11, 2019 – Spanish oil and gas group Repsol SA’s project for the construction of a liquid bulk pipeline to the Punta Langosteira outer harbour of A Coruña faces a delay due to slow progress of the issue of reports on the facility’s influence in different sectors.

The local administrations of A Coruña and Arteixo cannot give the go-ahead to the project, as the Road Demarcation report, as well as the reports of the A Coruña local parliament and of Galicia’s environmental institution Augas de Galicia are still missing.

Repsol sources say the company has already delivered all the documentation needed and that the company is waiting for the local government to give permission to start the work. However, Arteixo local administration says it cannot give permission without the documentation that should be sent by other administrations. 

“We will send a letter to Repsol informing them that these three sectoral reports are missing. The fact is that the license cannot be given until we have all the documentation and that these reports, in turn, are favourable,” a source from the Arteixo local administration said.

Repsol said that the phase of expropriation of the lands through which the pipeline will run and that already have the occupation act since last December, has been completed, but will not be effective until the construction permit is obtained.
