Being good neighbours in Singapore’s narrow straits
Shell carried out an environment impact assessment, including biodiversity surveys, ahead of work to replace a 6,000-tonne section of pipeline in the busy Port of Singapore – an area rich in marine species including corals and sea grasses. The work involved excavating 500,000 tonnes of seabed, which demanded careful management to minimise environmental impacts. We also undertook a thorough consultation process with neighbours and port users to limit disruption. The results and samples were also shared with a team from Singapore’s National Marine Biodiversity programme.
