The issuance of the proposed lease resulting from this sale would not constitute an approval of projectspecific plans to develop offshore wind energy.

This document is also a Request for Interest (RFI), pursuant to 30 CFR 585.212, to assess if there has been a change in competitive interest in the area encompassing proposed lease OCS– A 0508 since the publication of the North Carolina Call for Information and Nominations (Call) (77 FR 74204) on December 13, 2012.

If BOEM determines competitive interest in the proposed lease area (OCS–A 0508) no longer exists because only one potential lessee is interested in the area, BOEM may proceed with the non-competitive process set forth in 30 CFR 585.231(d)(i) following the receipt of the acquisition fee specified in 30 CFR 585.502(a).
