Every day is World Environment Day!
Energean undertook three initiatives in Israel, Greece and Montenegro to honour 2019 World Environment Day, which was celebrated all over the world on June 5.
In collaboration with the Management Body of Delta Nestos, Ismarida, Vistonida and Thasos, we cleaned the Erasmio beach area at the river Nestos estuary in the North Aegean Sea, a few kilometers away from Energean’s onshore facilities in Kavala, Greece. Pupils from schools in the region as well as students from the Democritus University of Thrace helped us fill 36 big garbage plastic bags! The kids had a great time, as they also participated in environmental games on the beach.
In the context of the event, Energean and the Management Body will sign a Memorandum of Understanding, as Energean assumes the maintenance and operation costs of the telemetric stations network in the Eastern Macedonia - Thrace National Park, whereby the abiotic parameters of the area's river and lake waters are monitored.
Also, Energean has reached an agreement with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority to support the live coverage of the passage of hundreds of sharks through the Hadera Shark Viewpoint. Shark passage takes place only a few meters away from the shore and constitutes a very popular spectacle for the Observatory visitors.
The name "Karish", carried by Energean’s offshore gas field in Israel that is under development, means "shark" in Hebrew.
In Montenegro, Energean, along with the Municipality of Bar, the Administration of Marina Bar, the NGO “Ozon”, the Južno More Dive Team, the pupils of "Blažo Jokov Orlandić" elementary school, as well as residents and workers of the area, cleaned the beach of Bar and the seabed of Marina Bar.
Thirty big plastic bags were filled with trash!.
Also, a competition of collecting trash and plastic lids was organized among the children, which were given symbolic presents (one globe, children microscope, and a world geography map) for their participation and excellent work done. Finally, the municipality of Bar organized a boat tour around the marina for all the children.
The initiative was part of the "Our Bar - Clean City" campaign and concerns the area in which Energean is conducting an exploration program to identify offshore hydrocarbon potential.
In Energean, every day is World Environment Day. Because WE CAN and WE CARE!
