Best Available and Safest Technologies for Offshore Oil and Gas Operations:
Options for Implementation

This new report, from the National Academy of Engineering and the National Research Council, explores a range of options for improving the implementation of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s (DOI’s) congressional mandate to require the use of best available and safety technologies (BAST) in offshore oil and gas operations.

The report, which was requested by DOI’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), also reviews options and issues that BSEE is already considering to improve implementation of the BAST requirement.

These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 28, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
