Oil and Gas Terminal Reclamation EIA, Bahrain
An EIA for a proposed reclamation platform for a new terminal facility to be located north of the Bapco Causeway and Sitra Wharf. The proposed reclamation is part of a strategic masterplan for the area, driven by the Ministry of Housing. As the project involved reclamation from the sea, the EIA necessitated undertaking a comprehensive Marine Environmental Baseline Survey, incorporating an extensive walk-over survey, broadscale benthic happing mapping and infaunal sampling. Water and sediment quality investigations involving sample collection were also undertaken.
