There is concern worldwide about how the seismic survey industry might impact the health and behavior of marine mammals. The industry has been expecting new regulations in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) by Mineral Management Service (MMS) and in the North Sea by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC).
It is in the interest of every lease operator / holder and seismic contractor to keep informed of and participate in the formulation of these rapidly changing regulations, for they are the ones who will ultimately have to pay for them. This article gives the status of new and proposed regulations and how they might affect the way seismic data gathering operations are conducted. It also provides a background on the science surrounding the issues of sound mitigation for the purpose of minimizing the disturbance of marine mammals.
