Pacific Region Organization & Leadership


The Pacific Region office is organized into a regional directorate and three sections covering field operations, production and development, and strategic operations. Pacific Region personnel include engineers, inspectors, geologists, geophysicists and environmental compliance personnel. In addition, Oil Spill Preparedness Division, public affairs, information technology and human resources personnel are actively engaged in region activities to further BSEE’s mission.

Region personnel are committed to ensuring safe and environmentally responsible offshore oil and gas activities which are currently off the Southern California coast. As federal regulators, BSEE personnel ensure safe and environmentally responsible operations by enforcing operator compliance with regulations, conducting inspections and exercises, overseeing safety and environmental performance programs, and validating the tactics, logistics, resource availability, and personnel requirements identified in approved plans and permits.
