South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion project

Amended draft Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Addendum for Georgia.

BP as the Operator of the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP) project announces that the amended draft Environmental and Social Impact Assessment Addendum (amended draft ESIA Addendum) for the South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion project (SCPX) in Georgia has been produced and is available for public review and comment. 

This ESIA Addendum assesses the potential adverse and beneficial impacts and addresses mitigations and management of environmental and social issues potentially associated with a reduction in diameter of the pipeline from 56 to 48 inch, additional sections and minor alterations to the proposed pipeline route in Georgia since disclosure of the original draft ESIA Addendum. The ESIA Addendum supplements the assessment and commitments made within the SCPX Final ESIA which should therefore be read in conjunction with this Addendum.”
