Resource Evaluation

BOEM’s Resource Evaluation activities support all the bureau’s program areas, both energy and non-energy, through critical technical and economic analysis.  

The program’s primary objectives are: 

  • To provide an assessment of both discovered and undiscovered oil and gas resources on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). 
  • To assure receipt of Fair Market Value (FMV) on OCS lands as mandated by the OCS Lands Act. 
  • To assess carbon storage resources on the OCS.
