Abstract

After discovery of Bombay High in 1974, ONGC has deployed several drilling rigs, process platforms and many unmanned platforms in Western offshore. As per requirements that the MoEF, Govt. of India has demanded, to fulfil the commitment of ONGC for protecting environment, IPSHEM, ONGC carries out regular monitoring of its oil fields and installations. In this aquatic environment, contamination and accumulation of pollutants in sediments will guide us better to assess the environmental stress around the focus area. Therefore, this paper focuses on analysis of hydrocarbon content, non-essential heavy metals like Lead, Chromium and Nickel along with biological study of bottom-dwelling living things i.e. macro benthos in the sea sediments near ONGC platforms and few other reference points of Mumbai High(BHR). Long term analysis for the years 1995 to 2012 has been also made for heavy metals and petroleum hydrocarbon to observe the trend of behavior of those environmental parameters. The trend behavior of PHC and benthic study of sea sediments reflects some minor influence of ONGC activities on marine environment.

Key Words

Marine Environment, aquatic ecosystem, ONGC, hydrocarbon contamination, heavy metals, benthic organisms.
