Metadata Updated: January 12, 2021

This data set contains OCS block outlines (clipped) to the GOM Planning Area Boundary in ArcGIS shape file format for the BOEM Gulf of Mexico Region.

These blocks have been clipped along the Submerged Lands Act (SLA) boundary and along the Continental Shelf Boundaries. Further information on the SLA and development of this line from baseline points can be found in OCS Report BOEM 99-0006: Boundary Development on the Outer Continental Shelf. https://www.boem.gov/BOEM-Newsroom/Library/Publications/1999/99-0006-pdf.aspx Contains the block polygons clipped on the fedstate (SLA-boundary) as of March 15, 2013.
