NEW ORLEANS - The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) announced today the completion of a draft supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) for proposed oil and gas Lease Sale 218 in the Western Planning Area in the Gulf of Mexico. This draft SEIS updates the findings in several previously published EISs covering the Gulf of Mexico, as well as new analyses using the latest available information following the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.

“The analyses published in this SEIS will allow us to make objective, science-based decisions about the activities involved in offshore energy exploration, development and production,” said BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich. “The public hearings on the draft SEIS we are announcing today are key steps to obtain public input on the environmental impact of oil and gas operations after Deepwater Horizon.”
