Gulf of Mexico Draft EA

BOEM has prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) covering the entire Call Area to consider the potential impacts from site characterization (e.g., marine mammal surveys) and site assessment (e.g. installation of meteorological buoys) activities expected to take place following lease issuance. The public comment period closed on September 2, 2022.

During the comment period, BOEM held two virtual public meetings where the public learned more about the environmental review process and had a chance to ask questions and provide comments on the draft EA. The public meetings were held on the following dates and times.
