Federal Regulators Reopen Eastern Seaboard to Oil and Gas Exploration

On Friday, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced that they are reopening the east coast to offshore exploration and green lighting the use of sonic cannons, which can locate oil and gas deposits deep beneath the ocean floor.

In 2010, Congress mandated a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) be prepared because there had been no comprehensive review of potential environmental impacts of geological and geophysical activities off the Atlantic coast. In developing the PEIS under the National Environmental Policy Act, BOEM coordinated with the National Marine Fisheries Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other agencies and organizations to develop a mitigation strategy focused on avoiding injury to marine animals and reducing the potential for behavioral disruption.
