Item Identification

Title: Offshore Oil and Gas Resource Potential
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2021
Abstract:

These data show the location of probable oil or gas geologic structures (plays) mapped within the outer continental shelf of the United States. Plays are groups of known or postulated subsurface hydrocarbon accumulations that share common geologic, geographic, and temporal properties, such as history of hydrocarbon generation, migration, reservoir development, and entrapment. Seismic surveys were used to analyze the Unrecovered Technically Recoverable Resource. Plays are displayed as two-dimensional features, but may overlap vertically allowing for multiple plays in the same area.

Purpose:

To support ocean planning activities pursuant to the Executive Order Regarding the Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States, the Energy Policy Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
