Pacific OCS Region, Mineral Management Service, U. S. Department of the Interior

Data Center Description
The Pacific OCS Region continues to pursue effective management of America's
offshore oil and gas resources. The Region works closely with other Federal
agencies, the State of California, local governments, environmental and other
interest groups, the general public, and the oil and gas industry to achieve
our resource management.

The Region has been an important contributor to the Nation's hydrocarbon
inventory, with over 1.06 billion barrels of oil and 1.33 trillion cubic feet
of gas produced here over the past 36 years. The Region is working closely with
the U.S. Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security to strengthen
security in America's coastal waters.

The Pacific OCS Region takes pride in its role in providing needed oil and gas
resources for the American people. At the national level, the MMS is also
considering alternative sources of energy, like harnessing energy from offshore
wind, ocean currents and extracting natural gas from deepwater methane
