We greatly appreciate the laudable contributions and efforts made by all those who took part in the environmental compliance process", said Mr Samuel Dossou, Petrolin Group Chairman & CEO.
This certificate paves the way for the construction of the second deep-water port in the country, in a property covering an area of 1006 ha.
