Title: Aspects of Effects Of Hydrocarbons On Selected Target Groups In The Vicinity Of Bashaier Oil Terminal
Author: Omyma Osman, Abdel Rahim
Abstract: In view of the involvement of the country in Petroleum Industry and the shipping of crude oil from Bashaier Oil Terminal as from August 1999, it is anticipated that the Red Sea Environment has become a target for impacts reflected on the fauna and flora. The anticipated results on the termination of the study have been looked upon, as basis for future follow-up and beginning of long-term monitoring. Coupled with this it has been thought that some of the impacts might have taken place during the execution of this work had the comparison been designed with findings from the selected sites and a control area not been exposed to oil pollution. The studies carried out have shown indications of change attributed to pollution when the three target groups (sea-weeds, sea-grasses and coral reefs) are considered. As regards the finding obtained from comprehensive studies in the various sites selected fro investigation some changes have been detected, though varying in magnitude. It follows from the above that certain conclusions can be drawn; firstly the comparative study with the control area has shown that the effects of pollution have already started. Secondly, the findings attached to target groups will serve as basis from which future follow-up and monitoring tart. It is anticipated that the study calls to a number of recommendations to be implemented within the framework of future monitoring
