NC Public Hearing on Proposed Atlantic Drilling


Proposed Atlantic Oil & Gas Lease Area (1)You are invited to attend an upcoming event on the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM) proposed offshore drilling along the Atlantic coast.

BOEM recently released their plan for offshore oil and gas activities between 2017 and 2022. The plan includes a lease sale for areas off the North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia coast, which will be the first offshore drilling leases granted in the Atlantic for over three decades.

BOEM is hosting public meetings along the coast where you can learn more about the proposal and submit written comments. Please attend the local meeting in Kill Devil Hills and voice your opposition to oil and gas activities off our coast, including drilling, exploration, and leasing. Meeting information below.

If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can submit comments online here.
