This map presents the State of Mississippi lease blocks for the state-managed, tidally-influenced waters. Additional information for consideration of oil or gas exploration or leasing has been compiled from appropriate sources. The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) believes the map to be an accurate depiction of this information. The senate bill No. 2853 prompted the creation of open file report 151 from our office. (
The map is 30" x 48".
