Transactions with Environmental and Social Impact Assessment

EKN classifies transactions with medium and long-term credit periods into categories A, B or C according to their environmental and social risk. Category A transactions involve a significant risk, while category B transactions involve some risk.

For category A-projects, an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) will be made public by EKN at least 30 days before final commitment is issued. This procedure is in accordance with the OECD Recommendation on Common Approaches to the Environment and Officially Supported Export Credits.

Surgil Project, Uzbekistan

EKN has received an application to support a Swedish export transaction to Uzbekistan. The full project includes:

  • Drilling and development of gas production wells at the Surgil Field, south of the Aral sea in Uzbekistan
  • Transport via 150 km pipelines
  • Construction and operation of a petrochemical complex with associated infrastructure, i.e. raw water supply line connection, rail and road connection, workers camp etc.

The final products are mainly high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP). In addition, gas will be sold.

The Surgil project is classified as a category A-project with respect to its environmental impact. EKN is therefore making the project´s Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) publicly available.
