The Alaska Region oversees more than one billion acres on the Outer Continental Shelf and more than 6,000 miles of coastline -- more coastline than in the rest of the United States combined. The region encompasses the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, the Bering Sea, Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Alaska.

Like all BSEE regions, the Alaska Region works to promote safety, protect the environment and conserve resources offshore through vigorous regulatory oversight and enforcement.

Regional offices are responsible for reviewing Applications for Permit to Drill (APD)s to ensure all safety requirements are met, and for conducting inspections of drilling rigs and production platforms using multi-person, multi-disciplinary inspection teams.

Alaska Region inspectors utilize a number of enforcement tools such as the issuance of Incidents of Non-Compliance (INC)s citations to require operators to correct violations. Regional and field operations personnel also investigate incidents that result in injuries and/or pollution.
