Michael Bromwich, who now leads the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE), has been tapped to take over the newly formed Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) until a permanent director is named. Bromwich’s top assistant, BOEMRE Senior Adviser Tommy P. Beaudreau will lead the new Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Bromwich and Beaudreau have been involved in the creation of the two new bureaus, which are to be officially established on Oct. 1. Bromwich agreed to serve as the BSEE chief, and Interior said it has launched “an aggressive, nationwide recruitment effort to find a permanent director.” Beaudreau would be the permanent BOEM director. Salazar’s Secretarial Order in 2010 divided the former Minerals Management Service into the BSEE, BOEM and the Office of Natural Resources Revenue. MMS was renamed BOEMRE, and ONRR now operates under Interior’s Assistant Secretary for Policy, Management and Budget. ONRR manages revenues associated with federal offshore and federal and American Indian onshore mineral leases, as well as revenues received as a result of offshore renewable energy efforts. BSEE is to handle inspections, enforcement and safety of offshore oil and gas operations while BOEM is to be responsible for energy leasing and planning on the Outer Continental Shelf.
