Ecosystem mapping: Repsol case study

October 2012

This case study explains the ecosystem mapping project Repsol have undertaken at the Teak-Samaan-Poui (TSP) block located off the southeast coast of Trinidad. Through a partnership with a local university, Repsol are undertaking a series of surveys to map the physical and biological characteristics of the TSP Block. Thus far, the benthic fauna has been mapped, and surveys are ongoing to map the presence and behaviours of marine birds and mammals. These surveys are aimed at mapping the physical and biological characteristics of the marine environment of the TSP Block to be able to differentiate between natural variations and anthropogenic activities.
