Oil cos seek review of eco clearance norms
After the power companies, its the turn of oil companies to make a strong argument in favour of amendments to the existing environment clearance guidelines.
In their recent presentation to the petroleum ministry, IOC, BPCL, HPCL, BRPL, MRPL and NRL have said existing guidelines should be eased out in a serious bid to achieve the timely completion of various projects.
These companies have suggested that the terms of reference (ToR) and the methodology for the environment impact assessment (EIA) study should be standardised for different categories of industry and projects.
