Offshore oil

A woman walks around the point at Refugio State Beach a year after the 2015 oil spill that left Platform Holly shut down and Venoco filing for bankruptcy.

Actions taken to ensure the safety of three offshore oil and gas leases near Platform Holly and an update on the Venoco Chapter 11 bankruptcy involving the offshore leases are among the items to be discussed by the State Lands Commission when it meets June 22.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at noon in the Jetway Room of the Hyatt Regency, Los Angeles International Airport, 6225 W. Century Blvd. in Los Angeles. The meeting will be livestreamed at www.cal-span.org.

Commissioners are also slated to consider an application from Santa Barbara County Parks Department for a lease of ocean areas to place seasonal swim and channel marker buoys, floats and signs to designate special use areas and a boat launch corridor.

The commission also will discuss passing a resolution opposing the presidential executive order “Implementing an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy” that establishes a policy encouraging energy exploration and production on the outer continental shelf.
