Environmental experts from BMT Cordah (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group, have collaborated with Israel based consulting firm, GeoProspect, to provide independent expert advice and guidance for Israel’s Ministry of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources. Geo-Prospect was contracted as the lead consultant to undertake a Strategic Environment Assessment (SEA) for offshore Oil and Natural Gas exploration and extraction.
Sharon Cohen, head of the SEA team at Geo-Prospect comments: “The BMT team significantly contributed to this project providing us with integral support in a number of key areas.”
BMT identified and defined potential sources of environmental impact, based on the operating criteria for offshore drilling and production in Israel. This intelligence, in conjunction with a review by BMT, of the habitats assessment undertaken by the Israel Oceanographic Limnological Research Institute, was then used to inform and support Geo-Prospect with the development of Israel’s Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). The SEA is the first of its kind and an important milestone in helping to set new standards in the way natural resources are administered in Israel.
Gareth Jones, Principal Consultant at BMT Cordah comments: “For over 30 years, we have provided in-country support to Governments and oil and gas majors around the globe in the preparation of these assessments, as well as Environmental Impact Assessments and Environmental Statements. Drawing on our extensive experience and best practice models, we can provide customers with the confidence that environmental and other sustainability aspects have been duly considered.”
