Thursday, January 30 2020: Offshore Hydrocarbon Seeps Mapping and Environmental Studies


Hydrocarbon seeps mapping is used on land and in the marine environment to prospect and assess oil and gas resource potential. In the marine environment, seeps mapping can also provide an environmental baseline to distinguish natural conditions from oil spills. Environmental baseline data collected during offshore seeps mapping campaign can include water geochemistry, accurate bathymetry, marine habitat characterization, and ice gouge, just to name a few. This presentation will focus on modern methods of mapping offshore hydrocarbon seeps, the benefits of systematic seep studies, and how such studies can reduce adverse effects on protected marine mammals during the exploration phase of oil and gas development. The presentation will also include information on a current seeps project in Alaska.
