BSEE Participates in Capitol Hill Ocean Week

The U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement posted the following article on the BSEE website:

WASHINGTON – More than 600 people gathered at the Newseum on May 7-9 to address the variety of challenges the world’s oceans face during Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), the Nation’s premier ocean stewardship event. Sponsored by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF), CHOW brings together political leaders, industry heads, and senior staff from nonprofit organizations to discuss a broad array of ocean-related topics, including offshore energy. The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) sponsored one of the dozen booths at the conference.”

“BSEE and BOEM are in the process of designating authority that will make BSEE responsible for environmental oversight, facility inspections, and regulatory enforcement of renewable energy. Meanwhile, BSEE continues to promote environmental stewardship in the offshore oil and gas sectors through integrated prevention, compliance, and preparedness activities. Participating in conferences such as CHOW helps BSEE explain to stakeholders its mission to promote safety, protect the environment, and conserve resources offshore through vigorous regulatory oversight and enforcement.”
