Guidelines for MMS Renewable Energy Framework
MMS has just posted guidelines that provide details of the types of information required in making application for interim and commercial leases on the OCS and also for implementation of the MOU between MMS and FERC.
From the issuance:
These guidelines will evolve and will be revised and updated as necessary as we implement the OCS renewable energy program. Also, as we gain experience with renewable energy development on the OCS, we may update our regulations to include energy-resource-specific provisions. These guidelines do not change the letter or intent of the REAU regulations.
