The Department of the Interior reorganized from 49 regions across eight bureaus to 12 unified Interior Regions in August 2018. Unified Interior Region boundaries are based on watersheds but are generally drawn along state lines to simplify coordination with external partners. Because BOEM manages offshore resources, our offices are aligned with the DOI Regions of the coastal states onshore.
BOEM's Alaska Office is in DOI Region 11.
BOEM's Gulf of Mexico Office is in DOI Regions 1, 2, 4 and 6.
BOEM's Pacific Office is in DOI Regions 8, 9, 10 and 12.
