Environmental Effects Monitoring

Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) for offshore petroleum activities in the Nova Scotia involves scientific monitoring of the effects of petroleum activities on specific components of the surrounding environment. EEM programs are conducted throughout each year, and the program design changes yearly. EEM is required for all development projects, and occasionally for certain exploration activities.

An EEM process framework was developed jointly in 2005 between the CNSOPB, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and Environment Canada. The purpose of the framework is to strengthen cooperation and coordination between government, regulators and industry when designing, implementing and reviewing EEM programs with respect to the oil and gas sector offshore Nova Scotia.
