The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has announced 8 new lease areas of the NY Bight will be put up for sale. While the public comment period has passed, I would strongly recommend to all of our potential supply chain partners to read the proposed sale notice (PSN), as it provides a lot of insight into the process of how sites are selected, and the due diligence required to be undertaken by all the major players. It outlines the environmental reviews, breakdowns on each lease area, transit corridors and much more. We are hosting the document on our website, click HERE
