AECOM was commissioned by INPEX to undertake environmental impact assessment studies for the Ichthys Gas Field Development Project. AECOM worked with INPEX to scope and carry out baseline studies on marine ecology, water quality and marine sediments. As INPEX’s engineering design of the facilities progressed, AECOM carried out impact assessment studies on aspects such as underwater noise, visual amenity, maritime archaeology and impacts to socio economic values such as recreational fishing.
