Item Identification

Title: Oil and Gas Resource Potential (National)
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-05-15
Abstract:

This national data layer shows the extent of the probable oil and/or gas geologic structures (plays) identified within the US Outer Continental Shelf located in the waters near The United States of America. Plays are groups of known and/or postulated sub-seafloor pools (hydrocarbon accumulations) that share common geologic, geographic, and temporal properties, such as history of hydrocarbon generation, migration, reservoir development, and entrapment. The analysis of the plays and their Unrecovered Technically Recoverable Resource (UTRR) characteristics represented herein was based on seismic surveys analyzed by BOEM geologists. Plays are represented in horizontal space but may overlap vertically allowing for multiple plays in the same horizontal space. Area calculations were completed in World Mercator. Data is displayed in the same projection.

Purpose:

To support 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.
