Letter from Erik Milito to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management with Industry Comments on the Draft Proposed Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program for 2017–2022 (March 30, 2015)

Considerable acreage has already been excluded at this early stage of the planning process, especially in the Atlantic, eastern Gulf of Mexico, and Alaska OCS. The decisions made regarding what areas are available for leasing will have long-term implications for our nation’s energy security, prospects for job creation, and government revenue generation.
