Innovation

  • IOGP Sound & Marine - PAMGuard for research

    Passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) is a mitigation tool for the oil and gas industry to monitor and detect marine mammals

  • Density Estimation for Cetaceans from Acoustic Fixed Sensors (DECAF)

    Fixed installation PAM systems allow industry to acoustically monitor marine mammals over a given area for extended periods (years to decades). When these data are analysed in real time they can affect decisions during ongoing E&P operations and possibly reduce some risks

  • Development of transfer functions for the Population Consequences of Acoustic Disturbance Model (PCAD)

    The Population Consequences of Acoustic Disturbance Model (PCAD) was developed with the US National Academies of Sciences National Resource Council to evaluate change in marine life behaviour

Informing the Industry

An important aspect of the JIP’s role is ensuring the industry stays abreast of up to date technology and methods in order to effectively manage offshore day-to-day operations. The JIP has funded research into technologies and methods that influence the way the industry operates. For example, our work to develop PAMGuard (which helps us listen to the sounds marine animals make) has virtually replaced all previous animal detection software.  Our continued research programme aims to further refine our understanding and improve the tools and techniques industry use.
