Serving the Oil and Gas Industry in Trinidad and Tobago: 25 Years of Experience

Since the early 1990s, Continental Shelf Associates has been providing marine environmental services through CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA) to support nearshore and offshore development in Trinidad and Tobago’s oil and gas industry. CSA has served this industry during the pre-regulatory and regulatory environmental permitting regimes, gaining 25 years of experience in the sector.

For many years, CSA provided environmental services to oil and gas operators when legal frameworks for managing environmental impacts were not fully developed. These studies were conducted to fulfil the corporate requirements of oil and gas operators. Since 2001, a Certificate of Environmental Clearance (CEC) from the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) has become a regulatory pre-requisite to conduct EMA-designated activities, including upstream and downstream oil and gas activities.
