Environmental impact of the use of air guns for marine seimsic reflection data acquisition

To achieve the objective of performing scientific drilling on Messinian marginal basins south fo the Balearic Islands, a request for authorization has been submitted to the Spanish authorities by OGS for a seismic site survey with the OGS-Explora. The request was accompanied by an environmental impact assessment and mitigation measures, as requested by the Spanish law.

The project has been misinterpreted by the local authorities and environmental organizations as an attempt to hide exploration for hydrocarbons. The Spanish press has covered the issues several times.
