Obhur Creek Yacht Club Environmental Impact Assessment

Obhur Creek Yacht Club Environmental Impact Assessment

An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was required for the Obhur Creek Yacht Club on behalf of The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia General Entertainment Authority (GAE - the Project Proponent). The GAE identified Obhur Creek as the site of the first international yacht club in the Kingdom. The vision is for the club to include international standard restaurants, a number of hotels and casual dining along with venues for larger social gatherings and events.

The project is situated on reclaimed land at the mouth of Obhur Creek, at the point where the Creek joins the Red Sea. The Obhur Creek is an 8km long inlet on the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia. The Creek is a tidal inlet that drains east-west into the Red Sea. Creeks form by downward erosion and headward retreat, meaning flows in them tend to be slow and require frequent dredging.

Our Role

ByrneLooby undertook a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) which assessed the impacts of the proposed marina and entertainment facilities on the local environment in terms of Air Quality, Noise, Marine Ecological Interests, Water and Sediment Quality, Waste Management, Soils & Groundwater, Traffic & Access, Socio-economics, and Landscape & Visual amenity as well as the cumulative impacts thereof. Where appropriate, mitigation measures were provided to minimise the potential impacts of the project during construction as well as operation.

Innovation / Value Add

ByrneLooby developed a set of in-house algorithms which were used alongside professional judgement to provide a unique yet reliable method of judging environmental effects across a multi-variate data set. This algorithm is based on IFC standards and internationally recognised environmental risk assessment formulas.
