Kelly is the Outer Continental Shelf National Oil and Gas Leasing Program Development manager at the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). She has been with BOEM for eight and a half years, starting in the environmental assessment division and . In the event of another large-scale incident, Interior’s bureaus and the Gulf’s operators are prepared to respond. By conducting close to a dozen studies with federal, university and industry partners, BOEM has robust analysis on the impacts of the oil spill and environmental research focusing on long-term monitoring, recovery and renewal. The Environmental Studies Program (ESP), initiated in , gathers and synthesizes environmental, social, and economic information concerning offshore oil and gas activities. The ESP expanded its focus to address particular issues as industry moved into deepwater.

It has been 12 years since a previous review by the National Research Council (OCS Oil and Gas: An Assessment of the Department of the Interior Environmental Studies Program, National Academy of Sciences, ) recommended a change from the previous program of supporting descriptive baseline studies to one of carrvin~ out studies that focus on.

Environmental OCS oil & gas: An assessment of the Department of the Interior environmental studies program book BOEM’s Environmental OCS oil & gas: An assessment of the Department of the Interior environmental studies program book Program develops, funds, and manages rigorous scientific research specifically to inform policy decisions on the development of energy and mineral resources on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

As of Julythere were more than 3, active oil and gas leases on more than 16 million OCS acres. InOCS leases provided million barrels of oil, which accounted for 72% of all oil production from Federal lands, and 18% of total U.S.

production of oil. During that same period.
