Onshore and Offshore Upstream Oil and Gas Operations: Federal Auditing Guide is designed to be used to ensure effective regulatory compliance with the hundreds of complex Federal Department of Interior (DOI) environmental, health and safety (EHS) regulatory requirements facing businesses that explore for and extract oil and natural gas (referred to as “upstream oil and gas operations").

This Oil and Gas Audit Guide has two primary purposes. First, the Guide provides subscribers with a comprehensive protocol that can be used to ensure that audits and internal assessments thoroughly identify all the federal regulatory compliance challenges facing upstream oil and gas operations. Second, the Guide also serves as a concise reference source for information on oil and gas safety, DOI regulatory issues, agency interpretations and guidance, facility compliance responsibilities and good management practices—all resources that can be used to help your facility efficiently and effectively maintain ongoing environmental compliance.


  • Designed to simplify compliance with federal audits and manage ongoing compliance for facilities' major activities and operations
  • Divided into two modules: the first module addresses activities on the outer continental shelf, which are overseen by the Bureaus of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and the Bureaus of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The second module addresses land-based activities on federal lands, which are managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
  • Annual subscription includes updates to ensure information is kept up-to-date.
