Background information and definitions
Drill cuttings from oil and gas drilling activities are often discharged onto the sea floor or riverbed to form a cuttings pile. Drill cuttings consist of fragments of rock contaminated with drilling fluids, oil, and chemicals, which may have adverse impacts on aquatic and semi-aquatic reptiles. Ceasing or prohibiting the disposal of drill cuttings at sea or in rivers may reduce pollution and potential harm to reptiles.
