Oil and Gas Economic Modeling

BOEM uses a series of models to consider the economic impacts associated with individual lease sales as well as the development of the National OCS Oil and Gas Leasing Program.

This page includes recent analyses and the associated methodology and model documentation. Reports from previous years have also been included, as BOEM continually reviews and updates its models and methodologies.

Some of these models were developed under the Environmental Studies Program and their associated model documentation reports are also available in the BOEM Environmental Studies Program Hub.
