Pacific OCS Development & Production Plans

POCSR Map thA Development and Production Plan (DPP) describes oil, gas, and sulphur production activities proposed by an operator for a lease or a Unit. The requirements for a DPP, Revised DPP, or a Supplemental DPP may be found in BOEM’s regulations at 30 CFR 550 Subpart B. These requirements may include the timing of the plan activities, information concerning drilling unit and equipment, a description of the production facilities and pipelines, vessels, the location of each proposed well or production platform or other structure, an analysis of both offshore and onshore environmental impacts that may occur as a result of the plan's implementation, and other provisions that allow BOEM to make a decision to approve, disapprove, or modify the DPP.

Over time, an approved DPP may need to be supplemented or revised. 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). DPPs were also formerly known by the title Plan of Development (POD).

Most of the 43 active leases in BOEM’s Pacific Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Region are organized into Units. Unitization is the combining or consolidation of separately owned lease interests for joint exploration or development of a reservoir or potential hydrocarbon accumulation under the terms of a Unit Agreement. Under regulations at 30 CFR 250 Subpart M, unitization may be approved or required for the conservation of the natural resources of the OCS, prevention of waste, and/or protection of correlative rights including the protection of Federal royalty interests. DPPs for Pacific OCS Region leases that are not a part of a Unit are organized by the oil/gas fields on those leases.
