Pacific Regional Operations
Development & Production
Pacific Region personnel currently oversee operational and production activity from 23 oil and gas platforms located offshore southern California. These facilities currently account for about 5.9 million barrels of oil and 4 billion cubic feet of gas annually.
In conjunction with the Department of the Interior’s efforts to develop cleaner energy sources, the Pacific Region is also involved in renewable energy projects off the coasts of Oregon and Hawaii. Because wind production on the OCS has the potential to significantly expand, Pacific Region employees are involved in developing regulations, inspection guidelines, and other procedures that will allow safe and environmentally appropriate development.
