DOE and BSEE to collaborate on offshore oil and gas research and production
25 August 2013
The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) signed a Memorandum of Collaboration last week that will coordinate the ongoing efforts of the two agencies on offshore research and technological improvement projects to support the safe, sustainable offshore production of oil and natural gas.
The lead office within DOE that will work with BSEE is the Office of Fossil Energy, which supports research and development with traditional fuel sources.
The agencies will continue to collaborate in support of three primary objectives:
building safety through technological improvements;
supporting research and development for offshore operations; and
working together to support the implementation of recommendations arising from various investigations and studies related to the Deepwater Horizon tragedy.
BSEE and the Office of Fossil Energy will engage in quarterly meetings to share near-term goals and track key milestones. Each year, the two agencies will prepare a joint progress report summarizing ongoing collaboration.
