Avanti to Continue Support to EPA Region 4 for Offshore Oil and Gas

Avanti will prepare the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the New Source NPDES general permit for offshore oil and gas on the Eastern Gulf of Mexico OCS. The assessment fulfills EPA’s NEPA compliance responsibilities and will address environmental, cultural, and public health impacts; options to avoid or minimize impacts; and measures to mitigate adverse impacts. Avanti prepared the EA for the previous general permit issued in 2009.
