Abstract

Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) is an important
tool in assisting Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA). EEM in
the offshore petroleum industry has been conducted world wide,
but traditional approaches have struggled to keep apace as
exploration and production activities move to frontier regions,
such as increasingly deeper waters and Arctic regions. This
paper proposes the use of autonomous underwater vehicles
(AUVs) for environmental monitoring of offshore facilities as a
means of improving and expanding the overall monitoring
program. The paper provides a review of technical and
procedural issues involved in this application of AUV
technology, including the current status of offshore oil and gas
EEM, a review of available AUVs, and a survey of
developments in in-situ sensors
