Offshore staff

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) have agreed to foster interaction, cooperation, and coordination on marine minerals and oil and gas resources on the outer continental shelf.

Under the agreement, BOEM’s Office of Strategic Resources may provide information to the association on BOEM permitting, research, and planning activities for informal review and comment by the affected states. The AASG, through individual state geological surveys, may provide information to BOEM on state projects for informal review and comment.

BOEM said the purpose of these reviews is to facilitate information sharing that will foster mutually beneficial interaction, increase opportunities for cooperative BOEM/state geological survey activities and minimize conflicts and misunderstanding.
