BOEM Announces Meetings for New GOM Oil & Gas Lease Sales

(Press Release)
Monday, April 02, 2012
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) will hold a series of public scoping meetings to gather information for an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the proposed oil and gas lease sales in Gulf of Mexico’s Eastern Planning Area offshore Florida and Alabama. This EIS is for proposed Lease Sales 225 and 226, which are included in the Proposed Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2012-2017. 
A leasing program consists of a proposed schedule of oil and gas lease sales indicating the size, timing, and location of proposed leasing activity for the five-year period following its approval by the Secretary of the Interior. 
The proposed five-year program includes offshore areas in the Eastern Planning Area that are not subject to the Congressional moratorium established by the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act of 2006 and where there are currently active leases or known or anticipated hydrocarbon potential. BOEM will not make a decision about any potential lease sale before finalizing the next five-year program.
