The purpose of this program is to assess damage to oil and gas production infrastructure, as well as the environmental impacts following the passing of a category three (or greater) hurricane. Assessment is made by satellite radar imagery. This is a cooperative effort with numerous federal agencies including NGA, FEMA, USCG, EPA, USGS and others. Although the program has been in place for several years it is not yet operational.
