WCEE’s Lunch & Learn Series presents

Oceans Part I: Offshore Energy Development

 

The administration has proposed opening most federal waters to offshore oil and gas leasing and development, making it a signature agenda item. In the meantime, Atlantic coastal states are pursuing offshore wind energy and in a record-setting auction, the federal government recently leased 390,000 acres in federally-owned waters off Massachusetts for offshore wind development. Join WCEE to discuss what is new in the leasing program and in the works for offshore energy development, what it means for industry, and challenges and concerns around potential increases in development in new marine areas.

This is the first in a 2-part series on ocean management.

Speakers include:
Kelly Hammerle, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), who will discuss the latest program initiatives

Nicolette Nye, National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA), who will discuss how industry is responding to and planning for these new leasing opportunities

Marissa Knodel, Earthjustice, who will discuss concerns their constituencies have regarding expanded development

Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019
