Post drill survey A6 - A6 2014

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


A consortium has drilled a production well linked to the existing production platform A6-A. This platform is located in an ‘FFH-area’ with a Natura 2000 designation area. Wintershall (one of the consortium partners) has requested IMARES to conduct a post-drilling survey at the A6-A platform site to assess the impact of the drilling activities. The 2014 survey consisted of the same elements (including sampling of sediment, side scan sonar and video recordings from the sea floor), as well as the same sampling grid as in the baseline study in 2011. Results of the post-drilling survey (2014) are analysed and compared with the 2011 survey to assess any impact of the drilling activities.
