Decades worth of errors impact Danish oil and gas projects

The Danish Energy Agency calls substantial errors in the processing of environmental impact statements related to the Dan, Gorm, Harald and Halfdan fields ”deeply regrettable”. In the short run, this could impact Danish oil and gas projects, according to public records.

The Gorm field is one of four oil and gas fields in the Danish North Sea where the Danish Energy Agency believes to have made errors in the environmental assessment statements prior to issuing permits.

Oil and gas operators in Denmark could face issues resulting from processing errors that the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) is believed to have made since the 1990s.

This is evident from a string of internal case documents EnergyWatch has managed to obtain through right of access.
