Seismic Operations Suspended
Thursday, October 20th, 2016
Belmopan. October 20th, 2016. Based on multiple concerns raised by concerned citizens regarding the seismic survey currently being conducted in the deep offshore of Belize as well as the fact that extensive consultation with a wider ground of stakeholders did not occur prior the commencement of the survey, the Government of Belize (GOB) has decided that it will suspend seismic operations until such consultations can be conducted. Accordingly, the Geology and Petroleum Department will inform the ship that they are to cease seismic operations immediately.
The GOB remains committed to the conservation and sustainable use of our natural resources.
