In fact, the federal government has constituted an independent agency that would be responsible for the management and conservation of these resources.

In the year 1849, the United States Congress mandated the creation of the Department of the Interior, otherwise referred to as DOI. The Department of the Interior has broad range of scope and responsibilities.

These responsibilities include the management and conservation of federal lands and natural resources, the administration and implementation of programs that are associated with Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, territorial affairs, and to insular areas of the United States.

The Department of the Interior operates and administers its programs and services through its major operating divisions, specifically:

3) Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) - This department oversees the management of the country's oil resources, natural gas, along with various mineral resources found on the outer continental shelf.   (continued...)
