The Government and the Board constitute a bilateral commission to analyze the gas project in Doñana



The central government and the Junta de Andalucía have set up a bilateral technical-legal commission to analyze all the information related to the natural gas storage and extraction project promoted by the Gas Natural Fenosa company in the Doñana subsoil.

This was stated today in statements to journalists by the Secretary of State for the Environment, Hugo Morán, at the El Acebuche Visitor Center, in Almonte (Huelva), after touring a visit to the Natural Space in Doñana.

Morán has specified that within the framework of this commission, which has just started its work, an analysis of the situation will be developed "from the strictest rigor".

For this, the technicians and legal entities of both administrations "have already started the work of exchange of information and analysis" from which "the result will finally lead us both to make a decision".

This question was one of the main ones addressed by the mission of MEPs who visited the Natural Space a few weeks ago to know their situation in situ.

The opinion to be issued by the members of this delegation is, according to Morán "one of the milestones" for Doñana in the near future ", together with the decision of Unesco on the ratification or not of the cataloging of World Heritage for this protected space.

On the other hand, has referred to the sanction imposed by the European Union to Spain for breach of objectives in purification facilities in several autonomous communities, among which is the Matalascañas WWTP, which directly affects Doñana.

Morán has advocated for "giving an immediate and urgent response to these open sanctioning proceedings because that costs the country money that could be dedicated to positive investments", therefore, "we are going to implement a plan for sanitation, purification and reuse of water, in which the WWTP of Matalascañas will be collected ".
