Offshore Drilling Plan Earns Strong Reactions

The Department of the Interior (DOI) and DOI’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) jointly announced the proposed final plan for offshore oil and gas (O&G) leases for 2017–2022. According to the BOEM, the proposed final plan makes available areas containing approximately 70 percent of the economically recoverable resources in the U.S. outer continental shelf (OCS). Of the 11 lease sales being offered, 10 are in the Gulf of Mexico; only one—in the Cook Inlet Program Area—is off the coast of Alaska. No lease sales are proposed in Alaska’s Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, both of which are rich in O&G deposits.
