With the recent reports and papers coming out regarding offshore fracking (VCInFocus has story in the works, reaching out to sources not in other news stories) a whole new world has opened up.
I had never heard of DOGGR before diving into this issue. And for the past seven months that I have been covering the oil and gas industry , which has included numerous emails with the public affairs office of DOGGR (our state regulatory body for the oil and gas industry) I never once came across the following two agencies (but now all in the one wee, there they are)
BSEE: Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement
*I wonder what their role is compared to the EPA in terms of environmental enforcement.
BOEM: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management
Check out their websites, they are pretty important federal agencies.
And if you don't know about the Cal. Spill Watch agency, well put their phone number on your list: 1-800-OILS-911
report any spills.
and like their facebook page to check out some photos of recent spills.
