Project Image
Client: BP
Date: 2006
Location: Scotland (UK)

Building on the wide experience of Aquatera staff and associates in environmental surveying, this project produced a comprehensive set of guidance notes and working protocols for environmental surveying associated with BP's UK oil and gas developments.

The guidance notes cover traditional grab sampling, as well as novel techniques using, for example, ROVs. The guidance notes follow the full lifecycle of a survey from establishing whether a survey is needed in the first instance, through to the use and archiving of the information produced from the survey.

During this survey, the Aquatera team drew upon its surveying experience in order to gather only data relevant to tracking changes in the environment as a result of oil and gas operations.
