On 12.02.2003, Mr. Lufter Xhuveli, Minister of Environment, accompanied by Mr.Zamir Dedej, Projects Director, Ms.Violeta Zuna, National Project Coordinator etc, visited the oil well in Zvernec.

At the beginning, Mr. Lufter Xhuveli met with Mr. Shpetim Gjika, Prefect of Vlora; representatives of the local project office, prefecture and ARM-Vlore were also present in the meeting.

There were discussed in general the environmental problems in Vlora district and especially issues of the MedWetCoast Project. The Minister said that, the Ministry of Environment and especially the Projects staff have paid a special attention to monitoring the Environmental Permission of the Ministry of Environment and the international experts’ recommendations for the oil well in Zvernec. Activities on monitoring of water quality in the Narta lagoon, the air pollution, noises, birds, etc have been carried out.

Mr. Shpetim Gjika told the Minister that he has followed continuously the activity of the oil well in Zvernec, monitored the Environmental Permission of Ministry of Environment and the international experts’ recommendations. The Project Local Office has continuously informed him on the work progress. Afterwards, the Minister accompanied by his staff and the Prefect of Vlora, visited the oil well in Zvernec. He met there the representatives of Ina-Naftaplin Company that is performing the oil well perforation and the representatives of the Hydrocarbons Agency representing the Albanian part in the oil well. The Minister was informed about the activities and the work progress in the oil well.

The oil well deepness up to now is 2808 m of 3500 m that is its total depth. The Minister was also informed on the measures taken for the environment protection, on the emergency and breakdown measures, and meeting of conditions of the Environmental Permission and the international experts recommendations for the oil well in Zvernec.

The Minister saw closely the works implementation in the oil well and the measures for the environment protection, as: treatment of the wastes from the oil well elaboration, the tubes for the wastes depositing, treatment of the urban residues etc. From the survey up to now, it results that there are no environment negative impact caused by the oil well.

The rigorous follow up of Environmental Permission of the Ministry of Environment and the international experts recommendations until the end of the drilling activity in the oil well in Zvernec was emphasized in the meeting.

I hope this is an evidence of the Government support for the MedWetCoast project.
