CSIS B1 Conference Center
1800 K Street, NW
Washington, DC 20006

The CSIS Energy and National Security Program invites you to a discussion with Michael R. Bromwich, Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE). Mr. Bromwich will discuss the bureau’s continuing effort to provide responsible stewardship of U.S. offshore oil and natural gas development. Frank A. Verrastro, Senior Vice President and Director of the Energy and National Security Program at CSIS will moderate.

On June 21, 2010 Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar swore-in former Justice Department Inspector General Michael R. Bromwich as Director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement to lead reforms that will strengthen oversight and regulation of offshore oil and gas development. Mr. Bromwich is overseeing the fundamental restructuring of the former Minerals Management Service, which was responsible for overseeing oil and gas development on the Outer Continental Shelf.

In response to the April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig and the resulting oil spill, CSIS developed the “Impacts of the Gulf Oil Spill Series.” The project is designed to inform the ongoing public debate by examining the complex interconnections between exploration, risk, regulatory environments, and economic consequences.

This session will be on the record. Registration is required. Please register no later than close of business on Wednesday, January 12th.

Please send your confirmation to energy@csis.org.
