Mission Statement

The Energy, Minerals & Compliance Division oversees oil and gas activities offshore Santa Barbara County, the onshore facilities that support those offshore operations and oil refineries, onshore oil and gas development, surface mining, and renewable energy projects. Our oversight includes planning, policy development, permit processing, environmental review and risk analyses, permit enforcement and public outreach. Our purpose is to provide comprehensive review of permit applications, enforce compliance, implement mitigation programs, and maintain a policy program. We do this in a spirit of cooperation with a variety of agencies with which we share jurisdiction over the projects that we permit and regulate for compliance.
