Marine resources and mining

Marine resources

Sustainable exploitation of marine resources requires careful consideration of marine environment values.

Marine resources include sands, oil and gas and fisheries.  Oceanica has provided environmental support for one of the only operational marine sand extraction industries in Australia, in a region where community expectations for environmental management are very high. 

Approval for the removal of this resource has undergone extensive environmental assessment and ongoing environmental management to ensure environmental impacts are minimised.  Oceanica has also provided technical review of marine environmental management plans for the oil and gas industry in Western Australia’s north-west.
