Our Nation’s oceans protect us, provide us nourishment and give us phenomenal opportunity. Whether it’s the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Oceans or the Gulf of Mexico, these waters are teeming with marine life, providing unparalleled beauty, recreation and economic opportunity for our Nations’ citizens. From north to south, millions of Americans rely on our oceans for jobs, to put food on the table, and to fuel the country. These invaluable resources are critical to our Nation’s security and are the reason the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) is committed to its responsibility for ensuring safe and environmentally sustainable energy operations on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).
