Protection of Marine Ecology in the Libra Project, Brazil

When developing deep-water oil and gas in Brazil, we comply with the Brazilian and international environmental laws, regulations and standards to conduct all-round environmental impact assessment and management for protecting the marine ecology.

The marine environment is very special, requiring more stringent protective measures. Before initiating the Libra project, we initiated the environmental feature acquisition program. We adopted technologies such as the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) to monitor the seafloor plankton,  flora and fauna, and optimized the design of an underwater recovery system to protect marine  flora and fauna as much as we can. Moreover, we kept environmental control and monitoring of the birds around the platform and beach conditions, in order to minimize the environmental impact.
