DOG conditions plans of operation, exploration, or development and other permits based on these mitigation measures. These measures were developed after considering terms imposed in earlier competitive lease sales and comments and information submitted by the public, local governments, environmental organizations, and other federal, state, and local agencies. Additional measures will likely be imposed when lessees submit a proposed plan of operations. The most recent mitigation measures will be applied to all operations, regardless of when the lease was issued.
