BMT Provides Environmental Support for Latest UKCS Licensing Round
BMT Cordah, a subsidiary of BMT Group, the leading international maritime design, environmental and engineering consultancy, has recently supported several major companies including Endeavour Energy UK Ltd, in their applications for the latest UK Oil and Gas Licensing Round.
The 27th Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round saw a record number of applications being put forward indicating that UK oil and gas investment is set to flourish. BMT provided environmental support to UKCS operators in the preparation of the required screening assessments which clearly summarise the sensitivities and potential environmental impacts of seismic and exploration drilling activities, in the areas of interest.
Norman Di Perno, Managing Director of BMT Cordah comments: “A comprehensive understanding of the relevant environmental regulations, directives and international agreements is key when supporting our customers through this detailed application process. With our strengths in offshore operations, impact assessments and consenting procedures, BMT was ideally placed to offer a high quality service and meet the rigorous environmental requirements.”
To enable the UK Government’s Department for Energy and Climate Change to assess environmental competence, BMT assisted customers with their submission under four key environmental areas: Pollution Liability; Environmental Regulations and Organisation; Legislative Compliance and Environmental Sensitivities and Issues.
