Workshop on Coastal Sensitivity Mapping and Shoreline Response for Northern Angola

Polaris Applied Sciences, Inc. delivered a workshop on the delivery of the Angola Coastal Sensitivity Mapping initiative for the north coast (Luanda – Cabinda). Attendees included ACEPA members (Angola Association of Exploration and Production), industry and government participants, and consultants. The 3-day workshop provided attendees with the background and deliverables resulting from 2 years of effort to map and characterize the northern Angola coastline, inclusive of the Congo River upriver to Noqui, and to develop protection strategies for key sensitive sites. The joint initiative provides the Angola government and petroleum operators with an integrated and comprehensive compilation of shoreline information and tools for oil spill preparedness.
