A supporting paper (Ref. 1) describes the results of the Platform Environmental Project, aimed at documenting and understanding the diverse ecosystem associated with the oil and gas production platforms, offshore Belait, Brunei Darussalam.

In order to demonstrate the development and diversity of the species present, a 20-minute documentary has been made. This captures the colour and dynamics of the marine life in a way that is not possible via written documentation alone. The DVD-based film is therefore seen as an excellent tool to increase the awareness of the platform ecosystem amongst stakeholders and other interested parties.

By showing this film at the conference we aim to highlight another angle of the environmental impact of the oil and gas industry, one that should be a key part of any future discussions regarding decommissioning options in the region.
