Environmental Assessment and Consenting

The oil and gas industry faces increasing scrutiny with environmental issues topping the agenda. BMT provides a range of services in support of monitoring the environment, understanding environmental impacts and satisfying regulatory obligations.

Environmental Monitoring

Our scientists are experienced in conducting marine environmental surveys including studies of water quality, atmospheric emissions and noise as well as the provision of habitat assessments in tropical and temperate waters.

These services are provided by our specialist operating companies in Indonesia and the UK.

Statutory Compliance

Delivering documentation in support of statutory environmental compliance can be complex and requires specialist knowledge. We have completed many hundreds of statutory risk assessments and applications, as well as providing comprehensive consultancy advice on environmental, legislative and compliance issues.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.

Environmental Impact Assessment

BMT has many years of experience in preparing high quality Environmental Impact Assessments and Environmental Statements. Our experience includes assessments related to seismic surveys, drilling programs, new platforms, new pipelines, platform upgrades and modifications, subsea tie-backs, shore approaches and shoreline crossings, terminals and terminal modifications.

These services are provided by our specialist operating companies in Indonesia, Australia and the UK.

Environmental Modelling

BMT supports the Oil and Gas Sector throughout its lifecycle using a suite of numerical tools. These include our in-house tools, PROTEUS (Pollution Risk Offshore Technical EvalUation System) for the simulation of drill cuttings and produced water, and OSIS (Oil Spill Information System) to characterise the behaviour and fate of spilt oil in 2D. We also regularly apply the Sintef OSCAR oil spill model for the 3D simulation of spilt oil.

Decommissioning Studies

BMT has particular expertise in supporting the environmental needs of decommissioning. We have undertaken environmental studies covering all aspects of the decommissioning of a variety of oil and gas structures.

These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.
