Oil exploration off the waters between Bohol and Cebu
« on: June 08, 2007, 05:58:15 PM »
The raging debate right here is the oil exploration off the waters between Bohol and Cebu.

Some questions raised:

1. The extent of damage of the seismic survey, which is done by detonating explosives, in terms of  envirornmental damage and fish catch.
2. Should the owners of "payaos" be paid first before they are removed?
3. Assurance that the LGUs will get their share of the national wealth.

Latest update:

4 Bohol Mayors protest oil exploration
By Kit Bagaipo

Four mayors voiced their objections against the seismic survey to determine the presence of oil and gas deposits in the Bohol-Cebu Strait to be conducted by the Department Energy (DOE) and an international consortium next week.

The four chief executives opposing the oil exploration project are Loon Mayor Cesar Tomas Lopez, City Mayor Dan Lim, Maribojoc Mayor Ben Redulla and Albur Mayor Efren Tungol.

The seismic survey will be carried out by the vessel M/V Pacific Sword, reportedly set to sail for Bohol from Palawan on June 18, or eight days from today.

Meanwhile, the Bohol Alliance of Non-Government Organizations (BANGON) released a manifesto yesterday questioning the conduct of the seismic survey without consultations with fisherfolks in at least five coastal towns to be affected while questioning possible damages to the marine life in the area.

The seismic survey, which entails the shooting of loud blasts of air into the seabed will determine if offshore Bohol and Cebu have hydrocarbon or natural gas deposits.

Residents fear the sound will drive away or kill dolphins, whales and marine life in several protected areas off the coastal towns of Panglao, Dauis, Cortes, Maribojoc, Loon and Tagbilaran City.

The oil exploration will focus on the Cabilao (Loon) and Argao (Cebu) coasts.

The survey area is host to various marine protected areas (MPAs), protected seascape and landscape and marine sanctuaries declared by the national and local governments.

MAYORS' OPPOSITION

Incumbent Mayor Lopez bared over dyRD's Inyong Alagad that a municipal resolution was adopted opposing the oil exploration project following consultations with people's organizations and NGOs.

Mayor Lim, for his part, demanded full disclosure from the DOE and NorAsian on the different aspects of the project. He said environmental issues should be given equal importance along with potential economic gains from the undertaking.

According to Lim, he is also opposed on the oil exploration since it is being done by a foreign firm.

Mayors Redulla and Tungol also have separate opinions on their objection.

Although, Albur is not among the towns to be affected by the oil exploration, Tungol shared his views regarding the need for the project proponents to secure permits from the municipal governments wherein the undertaking will take place.

Tungol said, any activity that takes place within the municipal waters of a particular town must be required to secure a permit.

Maribojoc, according to Redulla, have been opposing the exploration since 2005. In fact, the Sangguniang Bayan adopted a resolution on their opposition.

NGO'S PROTEST

BANGON president lawyer Raul Barbarona bared that their group's opposition is anchored on three particular concerns which is the assurance of environmental protection; just compensation of the fisherfolks who will be affected by the conduct of the seismic survey; and equitable revenue sharing if indeed oil deposits are obtained from the exploration.

Barbarona, who also heads the Environmental Legal Assistance Center (ELAC), pointed out that fish pens (locally known as payao) that are maintained by fishermen, will be damaged by the seismic survey.

As of yesterday an inventory showed that some 200 fish pens from Panglao to Loon will be affected by the exploration activity.

However, C-Watch, a newly-founded alliance of people's organizations (mainly fishermen's groups), parish priests and local government units who are also objecting to the project, bared to the Chronicle that there could be more than double the estimated figure.

The survey, costing a total of $4.4 million that will be done in between the Bohol and Cebu channel, will likewise disallow fishing vessels, passenger ferries and commercial boats within a 9-kilometer radius from the exploration activity.

The seismic survey will be carried out by M/V Pacific Sword, a vessel equipped with 2D and 3D survey equipment and airguns that releases compressed air into the numerous rock formations underneath the seabed.

An official notice released by NorAsia Energy Limited, the international consortium to undertake the oil exploration, stated that the M/V Pacific Sword's airguns, submerged in water, will emit sound energy with an intensity of 200 decibels that can harm swimmers and divers within 10 kilometers of the vessel.

In its position paper, BANGON pointed out "with the wide area which will be declared a 'no go', fisherfolks will be effectively denied access to their fishing grounds."

"The suspension of fishing activity even for a single day is already a heavy burden to a marginal fisherfolk, who is dependent on daily catch to support daily family needs," BANGON stated.

According to Barbarona, the destruction of fish pens will even aggravate the plight of marginal fishermen while "the seismic survey activity will certainly drive away fishes in the area."

Dolphins and whales, a major tourist attraction in the Pamilacan-Balicasag-Panglao area, is also feared to be endangered as these marine creatures are highly sensitive to sound. In fact, scientific studies indicate that dolphins navigate through sound waves and have a very delicate sense of hearing.

The seismic oil exploration in Tañon Strait off the Pinamungahan coast in Cebu allegedly caused the stranding of several dolphins that were discovered in the coasts of Negros Oriental.

However, Department of Energy (DOE) legal officer Atty. Mark Gamaleo in a separate interview with the Chronicle denied that the exploration method would cause massive fish kills and drive away dolphins.

JUST COMPENSATION


BANGON is urging local government units in the affected towns to conduct its own inventory of registered and non-registered fisherfolks.

Fish aggregating devices (FADs) such as "payaos" should also be inventoried to compensate its owners, according to Barbarona.

Likewise, dive shops and resorts that will have to temporarily suspend operations need to be notified and "must also be equitably compensated for damages," BANGON said.

The NGO is calling on the DOE and NorAsia to pay for the anticipated unrealized income of the fisherfolks even before the start of the seismic survey.

It said that failure to do so is "a clear violation of the bill of rights which provides for the protection of private property and the provision for just compensation."

Gamaleo assured that fish pen owners "will be paid reasonably depending on the location of the payao."

In a similar oil exploration in Tañon Strait, the DOE paid P4,000 to P5,000 for damaged fish pens.

When asked if the same rate will be used in compensating for payaos here, Gamaleo said the rate could either go higher or lower.

A fisherman who attended in one of DOE's consultation meeting in Dauis said a "payao" could cost from P10,000 to P15,000 depending on the depth of its placement.

The fisherman, who identified himself as on Caloy Abuyabor, said the consultation ended in a conflict between BFAR and DOE officials against the fisherfolks who were not satisfied of the conduct of the talks.

EQUITABLE REVENUE SHARING

According to Barbarona, documents from the DOW shows that for every $100 gross proceeds of the project, only $3.46 will go to the local government.

This share, according to Barbarona, will still be divided between the provincial and municipal governments which "puts LGUs at a losing end."

Moreover, Barbarona pointed out that the sharing is still very minimal.

He said there is a need for the national government, through the DOE, to publicly disclose the details of the service contract and other related agreements to comply with the Local Government Code provision for equitable sharing in the proceeds of the development and utilization of the national wealth.

Barbarona cited the experience in the Malampaya gas and oil exploration in the Northern Palawan coast where the province was promised a whopping P600 million annually.

However, the national government withheld the release of said amount causing a court case filed by the Palawan provincial government that has yet to be resolved.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Barbarona said until now the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources has not prepared a stock assessment of the fisheries in the Bohol Strait that would serve as baseline data before the conduct of the seismic survey.

Through the data, the damages or impact of the exploration activity can be determined, he said.

Without the data, Barbarona stressed, the LGU and the fishermen will have no basis to claim for damages resulting from the seismic survey.

C-Watch likewise pointed out the achievements of the province in coastal resource management.

Bohol's coastal resource management program has been recognized nationwide but will be endangered with the oil exploration, C-Watch chair Ira Pamat said in an interview with the Chronicle.

Both BANGON and C-Watch are asking for an assurance that the DOE and NorAsia will adhere to the basic standards of environmental protection in conducting the oil exploration.

Bohol Strait, particularly the vicinities of Cabilao and the Pamilacan-Balicasag area are considered a marine mammal highway making it a popular tourist destination.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

The concerned groups expressed dismay over the poor preparations of the government in conducting information dissemination and public hearings that would have engaged the stakeholders and proponents in a healthy dialogue.

The DOE's attempt to hold public consultations in five coastal towns since Thursday, however, proved futile as no agreements have been attained in the towns of Dauis, Maribojoc and Loon.

The consultations, according to BANGON, were in effect just intended as information campaigns, done only for 2 to 3 hours.

PROJECT BACKGROUND

The exploration will adopt a seismic method wherein a geophysical tool will be used involving the recording of sound energy reflected by the underlying rock layers after the introduction of an artificial disturbance.

M/V Pacific Sword, is also equipped with a streamer cable filled with sensitive detectors towed by the ship. Its airgun releases highly compressed air into the numerous rock formations underneath.

The Department of Energy (DOE) had awarded NorAsian and its minor partner Alcorn with service contracts for Calauit in northwestern Palawan, Ultra Deepwater Block in southwestern Palawan and in the North and South Blocks of the East Visayan Basin.

The area encompassing 2,040 square kilometers between Bohol and Cebu comprises the South Block while some 2,400 square kilometers in northwestern Leyte is tagged as the North Block.

NorAsian officials said initial studies show that the East Visayan Basin "has moderate risks with matured prospects, with high to very high recoverable reserves."

The seismic survey will have a "soft start" of 100 decibels to the full blast 280-decibel "boom." The soft start is intended to "warn" the fish to swim away, according to DOE officials.

The larger blasts take the three-dimensional (3D) "picture" over 146 square kilometers over two prospects and a 2D scan of 261 line kilometers over the southern leads.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has determined that the specific activities do not require an environmental clearance certificate (ECC) such that OIC Region 7 Director Alan Arranguez of the Environment Management Bureau (EMB 7) issued a certificate of non-coverage (CNC) for the project last May 24.

=============================

What an incisive comment from Ka Mike !! !

In fact we should be discerning over the "environmentalists" stance of these guys .... Let's take a look at their public record on this issue as well as their lifestyle so we can better gauge if the tact they now course is imbued with public or self interest.

Pagmata na Bol-anon !! !! !!

The oil exploration is about 'TREASURE HUNTING.' Basin daw naa pa ang sundang ug kutsilyo ni Magellan diha dapita.

Latest on the oil exploration issue:

Dialogue with stakeholdres, Bohol Alliance of Non-Government Orgranizations (with ELAC, PROCESS), Gov. Aumentado, Asst. Sec. Francisco Delfin, Jr. of DOE, Kristoffer Fellowes of NorAsia Energy Ltd., Mayors of affected coastal towns, BFAR held on Thursday June 14 from 6:00 PM to 10:30 PM.

Dialoge resumed in Friday from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM. City Mayor Dan Lim presented his initial position on the issue: Transparency on the part of NorAsia and composition of its shareholders.

Interim Output: creation of technical working group (mix of marine scientists, environmentalists, stakeholders, NGO reps) to determine baseline data to check extent of environmental impact/damage.

Asst. Sec. Delfin and Fellowes or a NorAsia representative will meet with Bohol tourism industry key players on Tuesday to discuss mitigating measures.

Still on Tuesday: DFAR Director for Region 7 will meet with stakeholders to determine how much should be the compensation for displaced municipal ffisherfolks and payaos which will be removed.

Sharing of proceeds in the oil production (if pushed through) has been clarified.

Seismic survey will not be conducted on the Bohol side until all issues raised by BANGON (headed by Atty. Raul Barbarona) will be threshed out.

Siesmic survey on the Cebu side will proceed.

Dili lang kay ang mga mananagat ang maapektohan, but ultimately we, the fish consumers. Kung mogamay ang supply sa isda, ang presyo mo mahal. Its a fact nga 60% of our food consist of fish and kadaghanan nato maka-kaon lang ug karne kung fiesta.

This issue is alarming and everyone must react.

I believed there are more modern ways of finding oil without compensating the environment. We have remote sensing through satellite technology. Saudi Arabia & other oil producing countries are using Satellite technology. This company is using cheap & harmful method.

I read one article that a sonar device was installed in Hawaii by the US military to measure temperature of the Pacific. It delivers sonic boom that reached thousands of miles throughout the pacific. This device was blamed for a number of whale beaching incidents in California, Japan and Australia. Whales and dolphins are very sensitive to sonar because it is their means of sight underwater and their sonar lobes in front of their foreheads will get damaged. So they can not find their way and may head to the beach. It is said that a deaf whale is a dead whale.

For humans, it is like staring directly at mid-noon sun.

Kung maka kita sila ug Oil or treasure, sila ra ang maka kwarta. Ang atoa, mga pinisik na lang in a form of taxes and who knows kung proper ang pag audit kay daghan pa ang bahinan, pero damaged na ang atong panginabuhi. Hinumdumi mga kaigsoonan nga usa sa attraction sa Bohol mao ang whale watching ug diving. It is but ironic nga multi-million ang budget for the development of eco-tourism in Bohol and not to mention the construction of Panglao Airport for the said purpose.

Unya ma hanaw lang ang tanan?…. gi unsa pag kwenta….

So, kung dili ma dala sa legal way, then let us do it the radical way like our ancestor Dagohoy has taught us.... sulong mga insurektos....

I am very disappointed nga mi sugot ang taga Cebu, ug wala gani bisan gamay nga reclamo. Maybe because most of Cebuanos are narrow minded. Sorry to say, but that is what I have personally observed. Cebu is a metropolis and majority of the population are dayos, so the public have no sense of "my own". It is like a public toilet... nobody cares....
There is no death, there is the Force

There are things that meant more than what you say...they are things that you do...

para nako, dili tingale ta angay mahadlok nga naay oil exploration diha basta well compensated lang ang fisherfolks , mga sektor nga maapektuhan ug dili madaut ang kinaiyahan. karon ang gidabatehan seismic survey palang pero daghan na kaayo nisupak, si Benny Gan usa ka geologist miingon nga sa dekada 80 mihimo na sila ug sangkaterbang seismic survey diha sa naasoyng kadagatan ginamit ang mga explosibong butang, pero nganong daghan pa man gihapon nakuha nga mga isda sa atong mananagat dihang dapita. karon pa kaha nga ang seismic dili na mogamit ug dinamita sukwahi sauna? Ikaduha, kanang modevelop ta ug usa ka butang o usa ka lugar naa jud nay advantage ug disadvantage, ani nga situation angay nato timbangon asay bug-at ang advantage ba o disadvantage.

Higalang Frenz,

Moreover, it is not a question of hadlok kay ang taw nga nag-mahal sa iyang yutang natawhan dili bation ug kahadlok. It is a question of who will get the "money", exploitation and sovereignty. Mura ra gud nang istoryaha nga ang imong asawa or uyab gi ambisyonan sa imong silingan....unsa man ang imong bation.

Atong tan-awon ug kinsa ang maka benefit ani nga project, pila ang mo sulod sa Pilipinas, ug pila ang mo sulod sa Oil company nga nag drill niini. While we have not solved corruption issues in our country, I believe we should not start with this project. Unless kung ang Pilipinas starving na gyud kaayo like Sudan and famine countries, maybe we should use this as last alternative.

Ang U.S.A., naa nila ang pinakadakong oil reserve sa Texas valley & Alaska, apan wala kini nila hilabti, not even a drop. Puro imported oil gikan sa Middle East ilang gigamit. I guess they knew the consequence.

Also as I have said, we are developing Bohol as an eco-tourism region and multi-million ang budget gi gahin para niini, not to mention Panglao Airport. All this will be in vain kung madayon kining oil project. Kinsa mang bu**** nga tourista mo anhi sa Bohol kung nang lutaw ang krodo or oil sa atong kabaybayonan.

Moreover, dili kay oil lang ang ma kuha sa drilling kun dili hazardous gasses usab. Ang pinakadakong porsyento niini mao ang Natural Gas, which is very toxic that a person will die instantly if exposed to it. Mao nang makita nimo sa oil rig nga mag siga kay ang natural gas dili puede i-desperse kung dili sunugon, otherwise makahilo.

There are many ways of improving our economy without compensating our invironment. We are one of the biggest supplier of professional manpower in the world. How about improving our Export-import sector like Hong-kong. As you know Hong-kong and Taiwan has no oil, no agriculture, yet they are one of the richest economy.

Bye for now kay trabaho na pod.....
