Qatar-based Energy & Environment Holding (EEH) and CSA Ocean Sciences (CSA), a leader in services related to environmental impacts from the oil sector, have launched a joint venture to provide a range of environmental services.

The new venture CSA Ocean Sciences (Doha) LLC will offer services including environmental impact assessments, risk assessments for offshore oil and gas activities, support for large marine infrastructure projects, biological impact assessments, and regulatory compliance permitting and monitoring.

The board of directors for the joint venture is chaired by Sheikh Jabor bin Yusef bin Jassim al-Thani, principal holder of EEH, and includes members Roudi Baroudi, chief executive officer of EEH and Robert Mulcahy, chief operating officer of CSA.

“We look forward to joining forces with CSA to build the leading environmental services firm in the GCC region. EEH is dedicated to quality and sustainability of the natural environment, which will only be reinforced with the assistance of CSA,” said Baroudi.

“CSA is pleased to have EEH as a partner,” noted Mulcahy. “We are very excited to be able to provide not only CSA’s core service offerings, but to also expand our services and capabilities in concert with EEH.”

“EEH’s focus on sustainable energy development supports the Qatar National Vision 2030 initiative, which aims to provide a balance between sustainable development and the protection of Qatar’s unique and diverse natural environment. We are proud to be working with an organization such as EEH and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship,” he added.

EEH is a strategic advisory consultancy that provides studies and market analyses related to environmental policies and programs with a focus on sustainable energy projects, environmental programs, deregulation, privatization, security and other issues related to energy projects in both the Gulf and the Eastern Mediterranean.

CSA has conducted over 45 environmental programs off the coast of Qatar since 1994 with verified long-term results, including oil and gas environmental compliance projects and mitigation programs using methodologies approved by the Qatari Ministry of Environment.
