Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement, also known as the Bureau of Ocean Energy, and formerly known as the Minerals Management Service, is an agency of the United States Department of the Interior that manages the nation's natural gas, oil and other mineral resources on the outer continental shelf. The Offshore program, which manages the mineral resources on the OCS, is divided into three regions: Alaska, Gulf of Mexico, and the Pacific Ocean. Headquartered in Washington, DC, the agency receives most of its revenue from leasing federal lands and waters to oil and natural gas companies with a profit margin of 98%. It is one of the largest revenue sources to the federal government after the IRS. The BOEMRE is responsible for inspection and oversight of energy companies to ensure they are following the law and protecting the safety of their workers and the environment.show more
