Lease Sale Info

First, final Phase II acceptances for Western Sale 238 were released on Monday, November 17. Results can be viewed in ArcMap via the What's New service (in the red exclamation point) and in GOMsmart's main map. Rejected bids are highlighted in the red outlines.

Before each sale, the BOEM will release a list of the official list of blocks for bidding in the upcoming sale. While the What's New section of the ArcMap toolbar is the quickest way to view this data, the toolbar has also been modified to load a local copy of this data to allow for customization of symbology, labeling and analysis. The image below displays the open blocks in the Central Sale today with deferred areas in gray.
