Management of Arctic Marine Oil and Gas Associated Noise

The continuation of Arctic marine oil and gas activities requires a better understanding of the sources of noise and the effects and potential effects of noise on marine mammals and fish.


  1. Take stock of the practices for noise reduction or elimination related to all offshore or nearshore oil and gas operations in the Arctic
  2. Hold a one or two-day workshop on the management practices for mitigating noise from Arctic offshore oil and gas operations and prepare a workshop report
  3. Consider these activities to determine if specific technical guidance would be useful
