ABSTRACT
The article explores how 2015 will define the U.S. offshore oil and gas industry for the remainder of the decade. Topics covered include the preparation of the majority of the next Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Five-Year Leasing Program, which include schedules of oil and gas lease sales, during the year, the significance of energy resources on the OCS on the nation's economic prosperity, and future developments in seismic survey permitting off the Atlantic Coast.
