Hundreds-of-thousands of fish released to support Environmental Stewardship Program
February 2021 – In 2020, more than 300,000 small fish (fingerlings) were released into a port near Dapeng, Yangmeikeng, a nature reserve in Shenzhen, China.
In partnership with CNOOC, the South China Sea Fisheries Research Institute has been conducting an Environmental Stewardship Program to monitor the impacts of the drilling and construction-related activities on the marine environment. We participated in this program as part of the environmental permit renewal process for the Liuhua 29-1 gas field.
"We are very pleased to be a part of the Environmental Stewardship Program," says Tracy Mosness, Vice-President, Production & Development, China. "Making sure there is limited impact on the surrounding environment is critical to our offshore operations. We ensure this by following the governing agencies' environmental guidance during the process of developing our fields."
The fingerlings start their journey in the port, growing large enough to eventually venture into the open sea.
