Ombrina is dead. And thanks to our protests, not only is Ombrina dead, so are 26 other oil and gas leases. To kill Ombrina, the Italian government had to re-instate a 12 mile buffer zone around the entire Italian coastline that effectively halted all those other projects. To summarize:
2007-2010 -- The Oil Center proposed by ENI in the town of Ortona, Abruzzo a desulfurizing unit with at least 3 oil wells, is dead;
2009-2015 -- The desulfurizing unit proposed by Forest Oil Corporation in the town of Bomba, Abruzzo with at least 5 gas wells, is dead; The Forest Oil Corporation is also dead. It was bought by Sabine oil who also declared bankruptcy.
2008-2016 -- Ombrina Mare with 4-6 oil wells and a desulfurizing FPSO unit, as proposed by Mediterannean Oil and Gas and later by Rockhopper Corporation is dead; Mediterranean Oil and Gas is also dead.
Abruzzo has now a law banning onshore oil drilling.
Italy has now a law banning offshore drilling within 12 miles from shore.
