Ocean Energy Management Bureau

The Bureau of Energy Management (BOEM) was established by Department of the Interior Secretarial Order 3299 of May 19, 2010 which restructured the former Mineral Management Service, dividing its responsibilities into three new bureaus—The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR).
On June 18, 2010, the Secretary issued Secretarial Order No. 3302, which announced the name change of the former MMS to Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE). This name, BOEMRE, will be in effect until the new organizations are in place October 1, 2011.
On October 1, 2010, the functions of the former Minerals Revenue Management (MRM) officially transferred to ONRR, reporting to the Assistant Secretary for Policy, Management and Budget.
On October 4, 2010, ONRR published a final rule in the Federal Register moving the regulations related to its royalty and revenue functions from 30 CFR chapter II to chapter XII.
On October 1, 2011 the remaining components of BOEMRE were transferred into BOEM and BSEE.
Under the terms of Department of the Interior Secretarial Order 3299, BOEM will be responsible for conventional (e.g., oil and gas) and renewable energy-related management functions including, but not limited to, activities involving resource evaluation, planning, and leasing, environmental science, and environmental analysis.
