The Environmental Impact Assessment Study for the onshore section was prepared by ASPROFOS Engineering S.A. in the framework of a Consortium for the Project Owner, i.e. IGI Poseidon S.A. company, which is a 50-50% Joint Venture between DEPA SA (Greek) and Edison International Holding (Italian).
It is mentioned that the approval of the environmental terms for the offshore section of IGI Poseidon pipeline (approximately 216 km from which 146km on Greek territory), which crosses the Ionian Sea up to the landfall in Italy and the receiving terminal in Otranto, has already been given by the Ministry of Environment and Energy.
