BETHESDA, MD – The U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) recently awarded Econometrica a multiple-year contract to provide expert assistance and technical support for the economic analyses associated with BSEE regulatory, research, inspection, and enforcement activities.

The results of any work performed will help BSEE, part of the U.S. Department of the Interior, evaluate the economic impact of its regulations for Federal actions designed to increase environmental and safety protection on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS).

This new award continues economic analysis work Econometrica began under a previous contract with BSEE. Under that contract, Econometrica provided BSEE with regulatory impact analyses and regulatory flexibility analyses for Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRMs) and Final Rulemakings. BSEE rulemakings supported by Econometrica include:

  • Oil and Gas Production Safety System (RIN: 1014-AA37)
  • Blowout Preventer (BOP) and Well Control (RIN: 1014-AA39)
  • Exploratory Drilling on the Arctic OCS (RIN: 1082-AA01)
