Project Background

Our client was investigating options for sustainable water sources for a shale gas project in Morocco

Our Services

Our water consultants were engaged to assess and identify potential sources of water, and review their availability and suitability. Several potential options were identified, including hydrographical networks (rivers or canals), existing dams, new dams (projected or project-dedicated), existing wells or new wells. A multi-criteria analysis was conducted to decide the best possible outcomes including a climate change sensitivity analysis which considered different climate change scenarios out to 2050.

Results

A preliminary ESHIA was conducted based on the proposed options, as well as an assessment of the required permitting procedures and the development of an action plan for implementing the proposed solutions.
