The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has prepared a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (Programmatic EIS) for the 2017-2022 Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Leasing Program. The Programmatic EIS analyzes the potential direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of possible OCS oil and gas activities that could result from lease sales that may be issued under the upcoming Program.
As part of the process of developing a Programmatic EIS, BOEM has sought and collected stakeholder input on the Draft document. Your local expertise and perspective helps ensure that all available information is considered in decisions made about the 2017-2022 Oil and Gas Leasing Program.

The Final Programmatic EIS will be published in late 2016 and available on this website.

The public comment period for the Draft Programmatic EIS is CLOSED.
