LONDON – Italy’s Environment and Cultural Heritage Ministers have approved Rockhopper’s environmental impact assessment (EIA) for the Ombrina Mare field development in the Adriatic Sea.

The decree, which includes the “Autorizzazione Integrata Ambientale” (Integrated Environmental Authorisation), or AIA, will now pass to the Ministry of Economic Development.

This should complete the process of the formal award of the Ombrina Mare production concession.

Rockhopper CEO Sam Moody said: “While additional approvals are still required before we move into the production concession, we consider this to be a significant milestone towards unlocking the project.”
