SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

BOEMRE prepares SEAs and FONSIs for proposals that relate to exploration, development, production, and transport of oil, gas, and mineral resources on the Federal OCS. These SEAs examine the potential environmental effects of activities described in the proposals and present BOEMRE conclusions regarding whether those effects have significant impacts. Environmental Assessments are used to evaluate impacts and assist in determining whether or not approval of the proposals constitutes a major Federal action that significantly affects the quality of the human environment under Section 102(2)(C) of NEPA. A FONSI is prepared in those instances where BOEMRE finds that approval will not result in significant effects on the quality of the human environment. The FONSI briefly presents the basis for that finding and includes a summary or copy of the SEA. This notice constitutes the public notice of availability of environmental documents required under the NEPA Regulations.
