SYNOPSIS

Coral reefs are facing several threats, such as climate change, pollution, and overfishing, coral reefs, as a crucial ecosystem, can be saved by repurposing decommissioned oil rigs, which already have a mature marine ecosystem on their jackets. Our proposed solution involves revitalizing the marine ecosystem by creating expansible habitats by building 3D-printed modular artificial reefs, establishing a research facility on the platform to monitor them closely, utilizing underwater photography in awareness campaigns to reveal this ecosystem, and providing an accessible digital platform for the public to learn more about the project, take action, and contribute to marine conservation.

Rigs-to-Reefs provides an alternative to complete rig removal in which an oil company chooses to modify a platform so that it can continue to support marine life as an artificial reef.

HBITATS OF MARINE LIFE

Shortly after a platform is installed, it becomes habitat to marine life and communities begin to grow.

"ReeForm, a vital component of the Rigs to Reef program, repurposes decommissioned rigs into reefs, providing additional habitats for local marine animals based on their existing habitats under the rig."
