Coastal Restoration and Biodiversity

Mitigating Saltwater Intrusion | Biodiversity and Coastal Erosion Programs

MAD Energy, FirebirdLNG and Phoenix Development Company have initiated a mangrove preservation/enhancement and shoreline integrity program through coastal protection programs with spearheaded by Robert R. Lane and Steve Rowan with local and international university experts and stakeholders.

Dr. Lane spend 23 years as a wetland and coastal research scientist at Louisiana State University (LSU). He has published numerous papers in peer- reviewed scientific journals concerning water quality and management of coastal and inland wetland systems and co-authored the first carbon sequestration methodology for creating and monetizing carbon offset credits from a broad range of wetland restoration activities. Dr. Lane has designed and carried out several carbon quantification studies, including one measuring the release of greenhouse gasses during wetland loss, and another of a forested wetland receiving inputs from a wastewater treatment plant. Dr. Lane assisted with the planting and monitoring of over 6000 mangrove seedlings along the Louisiana coast, and the collection of over half-a-million mangrove propagules for dispersal by airplane, both carbon sequestration projects. He has also studied the impacts of river diversions on coastal water quality, wetland surface elevation, vegetative and aquatic primary productivity, and soil porewater chemistry, as well as the effectiveness of restoration techniques including sediment fences, hydrologic alterations, living shorelines, municipal effluent application, and cypress and mangrove plantings. In addition, Dr. Lane developed a mangrove restoration plan for Guam Navy Base.

Stopping Flaring in the Amazon


Flaring is significant source of Volatile Organic Compounds, Nitrogen Oxides, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Sulfur Dioxide and Black Carbon. FirebirdLNG its operation will allow us to harness the potential of otherwise flared or untapped natural gas, transforming it into a cleaner source of fuel. By converting this valuable resource into a more sustainable and responsible energy source, the project will make a positive impact on the environment, local economy, and communities.


Direct Social Impacts

Education and Knowledge Transfer


We aim to create both short-term and long-term job opportunities for Surinamese, Guyanese and CARICOM citizens, which will further stimulate the economy through indirect job creation.

We foster the development of local innovative industries, ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future for our children. Our commitment to knowledge transfer is manifested through industry capacity building and job training programs, which facilitate local entrepreneurship and contribute to the growth of higher education in the region. We will collaborate with local universities and institutions to develop comprehensive undergraduate and graduate programs that focus on the advancements of the 3rd and 4th Industrial Revolution, nurturing a highly skilled labor force from within our community.
