Coral at low tide Maret Island
Supporting Ichthys LNG’s development since 2004, RPS has completed a wide range of MetOcean measurement programs to help designers understand the wind, wave, tide and current patterns that impact Ichthys’ offshore infrastructure and onshore export hub near Darwin.
Using state-of-the-art oceanographic measurement technologies such as directional wave buoys and high-accuracy current meters, we’ve provided critical information for Ichthys’ engineering, while comprehensive hindcasting and modelling completed by our specialists is helping Inpex to understand and manage the risks posed by extreme weather events.
Understanding ecosystems and habitats is a vital component of Inpex’s work to mitigate the environmental risk factors associated with the construction and long-term operation of Ichthys LNG, and RPS ecologists have undertaken a wide variety of technical studies to inform the project’s Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and Statement (EIS).
These studies have included comprehensive assessment, mapping and reporting on terrestrial vegetation, birds, reptiles, marine sediments, benthic habitats, seagrasses, water quality, hydrogeology and more.
