The State of Oregon maintains an interest and is an active participant in the activities that occur on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) beyond the State's Territorial Sea boundaries. This section of our site describes aspects of the State's interest and applicable authorities related to OCS management. It also provides information regarding ongoing continental shelf activities at the State and Federal level.  The most active area of work related to OCS waters is a focus on offshore wind energy planning, through the BOEM Oregon OCS Renewable Energy Task Force.
