Offshore Oil Exploration, Marine Ecological Survey, Bahrain

Environment Arabia carried out a post drilling survey of Fasht Al Adhom in April 2005 to assess whether drilling operations have had any effects on the ecology in the study area. The project team conducted a series of underwater surveys to assess the status of benthic flora and fauna. By re-visiting stations previously surveyed in 2004, it was possible to make comparisons with both species diversity and abundance.
