Categorized Under: Environment

 

 

The August 2010 issue of The Impact Report includes an article entitled "Gulf Oil Spill Prompts NEPA Review of Minerals Management Service." This is an update to that article which now includes the recently released CEQ report (August 16, 2010) containing the findings of the review and recommendations for reforming the MMS NEPA process. In the previous article we reported that the Council and Environmental Quality (CEQ) and the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) had embarked on a review of the Mineral Management Service (MMS) implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for outer continental shelf (OCS) oil and gas projects.
