Public Comment Period Extended for GOM Wind Energy Areas and Draft Environmental Assessment

Liskow & Lewis
In response to multiple requests from stakeholders and interested parties during the third Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force meeting, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management agreed to extend the public comment periods for the two potential wind energy areas (WEAs) and the draft Environmental Assessment (EA). Both 30-day comment periods, which were originally scheduled to end on August 19, 2022, have been extended by 15 calendar days to September 2, 2022.

Stakeholders and interested parties will now have more time to analyze and provide input on the two WEAs identified in the Gulf of Mexico: one located off the coast of Galveston and the second located off the coast of Lake Charles. Additionally, such parties have more time to review and provide comments on the draft EA, an especially detailed and lengthy document.
