    Abstract

    To minimise impact on the relatively unpolluted marine environment, environmental policy was incorporated in all aspects of development from planning through construction to operation. Environmental risk from such oil-related activities and organisation of relevant programs is considered, with emphasis on impact assessment, pre-operational studies and subsequent monitoring strategy. The roles of operators, local authorities, central government, environmental consultants and others are discussed. -from Author
