Resource Evaluation

The Resource Evaluation activities support all BOEM program areas, both energy and non-energy, through critical technical and economic analysis. The primary program objectives are to provide an assessment of both discovered and undiscovered oil and gas resources on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and to assure receipt of Fair Market Value (FMV) on OCS lands as mandated by the OCS Lands Act. Resource Evaluation functions are carried out by personnel located at Bureau Headquarters and Regional Offices.
