WASHINGTON, DC - On January 4, 2018 the Department of Interior announced publication of a Draft Proposed Program (DPP) in support of the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program), as well as a Notice of Intent (NOI) to develop a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS).

In order to obtain public input for these two documents, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) scheduled a series of public meetings, including one for Richmond, VA.

Due to potential hazardous weather conditions, BOEM is postponing the Richmond, Va meeting, which was originally scheduled for January 17, 2018. We apologize for any inconvenience this scheduling change may cause you.

We hope to reschedule the meeting in the near future, and we will keep you informed of our progress.

Please Note: BOEM has also launched a virtual meeting room on the BOEM website to allow those who are unable to attend a meeting access to the same information and participate in the commenting process.

The entire list of public meetings are available at boem.gov/National-Program-Participate/ and the virtual meeting room is available at boem.gov/virtual/.
