PROJECTS & CLIENTS
The presence of trained marine mammal observers onboard is a regulatory requirement for many large offshore developments in the Arabian Peninsula region. The Arabian Marine Species Observer (AMSO) Course is the first regionally specialized marine species observer programme in the Arabian Peninsula. This course is increasingly recognized as the most suitable option for environmental professionals in the region, and is specifically developed to take into account regional regulations and marine species. The programme content and design is a collaboration between Nautica Environmental Associates, headquartered in the UAE and Five Oceans Environmental Services in Oman, combining 30 years of experience in the region with leading scientists in the field of marine species identification. Below are some of the major developers that have chosen the Arabian Marine Species Observer (AMSO) course for their crew.
Hail & Gasha
The Ghasha mega-project is the world’s largest offshore sour gas project. National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) is contracted with the construction of eleven artificial islands in Hail and Ghasha fields. Trained Arabian Marine Species Observers working on vessels in the area play a crucial role in the mitigation of environmental impacts concerning vital marine species.
Red Sea Development
Red Sea Project is a land and property development on the Western coast of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast. The project is focused on tourism, hoping to attract tourists to visit and explore the Saudi western coast. Trained Arabian Marine Species Observers working in the area on land and on vessels, for a variety of developing partners and contractors, play a vital role in the mitigation of environmental impacts concerning vital marine species.
