WASHINGTON, DC, May 26 -- The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly ensure environmentally sound offshore energy development.

The two agencies announced the MOU at the International Oil Spill Conference in Portland, Ore.

BOEMRE Director Michael R. Bromwich said the MOU will stimulate greater efficiency in developing US Outer Continental Shelf energy policy and conservation.

NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco said the MOU is consistent with recommendations from US President Barack Obama’s independent oil spill commission.
