It might not be the most headline-grabbing environmental news, but a recent memo from Fulbright & Jaworski announced that a 2010 BSEE Notice to Lessees and Operators (NTL No. 2010-N05) has been vacated as the result of an appeal to the Interior Board of Land Appeals by the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA).
The appeal challenged “the NTL’s requirement that the Chief Executive Officers of federal offshore operators had to certify, on short notice and under threat of administrative sanction and criminal penalty, that their companies were in compliance with offshore regulations and had completed certain reviews of its operations.”
After a bit of back and forth between the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) – the earlier incarnation of Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) – and the IPAA, BOEMRE complied with the IPAA request by vacating the NTL.
What does this all have to do with Knowledge Mosaic?
Well, late last week we fleshed out our agency materials by adding all current BSEE Notices to Lessees and Operators to our Laws, Rules, and Agency Materials search page. A search page, might I add, that allows you to not only search, but save, share and alert.
But it’s not all BSEE Notices to Lessees and Operators. We’ve now got press releases, speeches & testimony, guidance, and more from BSEE, BOEM, and even the now-defunct BOEMRE. We’ve also rounded out our Department of Energy and FERC offerings.
