Development and Production Plans (DPP)

A Development and Production Plan (DPP) is a plan that describes development and production activities proposed by an operator for a lease or group of leases. The description includes the timing of these activities, information concerning drilling vessels, the location of each proposed well or production platform or other structure, and an analysis of both offshore and onshore impacts that may occur as a result of the plan's implementation.  A Revised DPP describes changes to the proposed activities included in a previously approved DPP, but will not require the approval of additional permit(s).  A Supplemental DPP describes proposed activities on a lease(s) that were not included in a previously approved DPP and will require approval of additional permit(s).
