ABSTRACT

Offshore Energy Agency Appropriations, FY2023 [September 1, 2022]   [open pdf - 548KB]

From the Document: "Three entities in the Department of the Interior (DOI) share responsibility for managing the nation's ocean energy resources on almost 2.5 billion acres of the U.S. outer continental shelf (OCS). The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) administers offshore energy leasing and mineral development; the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) oversees offshore operational safety and environmental protection; and the Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) manages public revenues from federally regulated offshore and onshore energy and natural resource projects. BOEM, BSEE, and ONRR receive appropriations in the annual Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies appropriations bill. Issues include determining the aggregate and program-level appropriations for each entity. On July 1, 2022, the House Committee on Appropriations reported an FY2023 Interior appropriations bill, H.R. 8262 (H.Rept. 117-400), with funding for BOEM, BSEE, and ONRR. On July 20, 2022, the House passed H.R. 8294, a consolidated appropriations bill with the same amounts for the three entities. On July 28, 2022, S. 4686 was introduced in the Senate with FY2023 appropriations for the three entities. The Senate Appropriations Committee majority released a related draft explanatory statement (DES). [...] The discretionary appropriations for each fiscal year are reduced by the amount of eligible fees and receipts collected, so that the final amount appropriated to each agency is the net of those collections. Discussions of account- and activity-level funding in the sections below refer to total budget authority, regardless of offsets. ONRR's funding does not include offsetting collections."
