Testing oil spill containment equipment is a critical part of BSEE's mission protecting safety and the environment on the Outer Continental Shelf. Some testing is done at Ohmsett National Oil Spill Response Research Facility in BSEE's 2.6 million-gallon salt water tank for simulating ocean conditions.

BSEE sets forth regulations and guidance for the design and operation of oil and gas facilities to withstand the extreme conditions of severe weather and hurricanes and protect the men and women who work offshore and the environment. These preventative measures also are designed to minimize disruption of oil and gas production in the wake of a storm.
