The article cites the release of the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Marine Safety and Security Council's winter issue of its quarterly magazine Proceedings: Journal of Safety and Security at Sea, entitled "The Outer Continental Shelf: One Shelf, One Standard." It focuses on normalizing the regulatory sphere on the outer continental shelf by making a concerted effort to give industry definitive parameters. Insights into the long- and short-term outlook regarding the regulatory environment is provided.
