Title: Oil and Gas Platforms
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-06-12
Abstract:

This data set contains point locations for oil and gas platforms (structures) located in the state and federal waters surrounding the United States out to the Exclusive Economic Zone. In many cases, controlling members of the industry and the applicable government agencies have chosen not to make information about oil and gas structures available to the public. A value of "unavailable" has been assigned in these instances. An effort was made to exclude from this dataset all structures that have been decommissioned through a state or federal Rigs-to-Reefs program; only included herein are structures known to be actively producing hydrocarbon products, or those for which production status could not be verified.These data were retrieved from many different State and Federal Government sources, and there was great diversity of attribution, quality and recency among the sources. This resulting dataset represents the best possible effort to create a temporally relevant data collection with a unified schema appropriate for the intended audience. All users are encouraged to visit the source agencies websites listed in the attributes for the most updated and complete records on individual structures and specific areas of interest. It may also be helpful to consult the lineage section of this document for additional information on each data source.Because GIS projection and topology functions can change or generalize coordinates, these GIS files are considered to be approximate and are NOT an OFFICIAL record.

Purpose:

To provide a visual representation of oil and gas structures in United States waters in support of coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is WGS 1984 World Mercator (ESPG: 3395). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.
