• CRE Comments on Gulf of Mexico DEIS

    On February 13, 2012, CRE filed comments on the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s Draft Environmental ImpactStudy for the Gulf of Mexico, Outer Continental Shelf, Western Planning Area and Central Planning Area, Oil and Gas Lease Sales for 2012–2017. CRE’s comments offered the following recommendations to BOEM: (1) the final EIS should reflect the conclusion that seismic does not adversely affect marine mammals under current BOEM regulations; (2) any new, significantly more stringent seismic regulations issued by BOEM will require a new proposed Information Collection Request; and (3) BOEM should further encourage the use of PAMGUARD as part of the protected species observer program.
