                    The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) is the portion of the ocean

                  sible for oil and gas leasing on the OCS. BOEM has divided the
                  OCS into 26 administrative planning areas-11 along the Lower 48
                  states, and 15 along Alaska. Under the Outer Continental Shelf
                  Lands Act (OCSLA), DOI must go through a multi-step process to
