Layer: OCS - Oil and Gas Resource Plays (ID: 26)

Name: OCS - Oil and Gas Resource Plays

Display Field: PLAY

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: This data layer shows the extent of the probable oil and/or gas geologic structures (plays) identified within the US Outer Continental Shelf. Plays are groups of known and/or postulated sub-seafloor pools (hydrocarbon accumulations) that share common geologic, geographic, and temporal properties, such as history of hydrocarbon generation, migration, reservoir development, and entrapment. Geologic classifications of each play and its potential are described in the associated reports for each region. The analysis was based on seismic surveys analyzed by BOEM geologists. Areas were generated by creating unique polygons based on portions of the plays where they overlap. Polygons shown here are portions of the whole play areas that represent between 1 and 10 overlapping portions of overlapping plays. This was done because plays are represented in horizontal space but may overlap vertically allowing for multiple plays in the same horizontal space. The available downloadable shape files contain individual play polygons for each region that can be used in conjunction with BOEM Resource Assessments. Information pertaining to the oil/gas potential for each play can be found here: Individual region files can be downloaded from the following location:
