The Center for Energy Studies and the Coastal Marine Institute

Since the mid-1990s, the Center has produced studies on the history, performance and socioeconomic impacts of the offshore oil and gas industry for the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, formerly the Minerals Management Service.

The majority of the Center's projects have been funded through the Coastal Marine Institute or CMI, a funding program created in 1992 by a cooperative agreement between LSU and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.

The following video, prepared for the CMI 20th Anniversary Symposium, held April 23, 2012, summarizes just a few of the Center for Energy Studies’ CMI projects.
