Offshore staff

HOUSTON – BPZ Energy has responded to recent enquiries concerning its seismic activity offshore Peru and a possible link to dolphin deaths.

The company’s operations in Tumbes are 500 km (311 mi) north of Lambayeque where the deaths have been reported. The incidents were first reported prior to BPZ start of its seismic survey in the Tumbes waters on Feb. 8.

Similar deaths, the company points out, have been reported off Brazil and various states on the Atlantic seaboard of the US.

BPZ says since the seismic survey began, no marine mammal deaths have been found in the Tumbes area by company personnel, third party marine mammal observers, or local fishermen.
