The SL delegation led by Dr Rohan Perera presented its Continental Shelf Submission before the Sub-commission established by the CLCS in October 2016. The presentation was assisted by New Zealand's expert on the subject, Ray Wood. Ray is a geologist and geophysicist. He started his career with Shell's research laboratory in Houston, and moved to New Zealand in 1979. He was one of the technical advisors to the delegation that negotiated New Zealand's maritime boundaries with Australia and has presented numerous talks on the application of Article 76, and is helping many countries to write their continental shelf submissions.
