ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement's (BOEMRE) draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) report on the U.S. Department of Interior's (DOI) Lease 218, putting the U.S. government's plans to auction offshore oil and gas leases in the Western Gulf of Mexico back on track. The SEIS report declared the safety of the lease following its postponement after the British Petroleum oil spill in 2010. It adds that the lease sale will yield much needed oil, natural gas and employment in the U.S.
