Revised Development and Production Plan for Santa Ynez Unit

ExxonMobil Corporation (ExxonMobil) has revised its oil and gas Development and Production Plan (DPP) for the Santa Ynez Unit. The DPP revision proposes to replace power cables from state waters to and between Platforms Harmony, Hondo and Heritage in the Santa Ynez Unit on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

In accordance with Federal regulations (30 CFR 550.266), BOEM conducted a completeness review of the revised DPP. On June 23, 2014, BOEM deemed the revised DPP submitted (complete).
