Series Title : Proposed OCS Sale 58A, Visual No. 7 Covers an area extending from Mobile Bay to the Texas-Mexico border, focusing on the Gulf of Mexico. County boundaries and major cities are shown along the coast. The Gulf is divided into grids, representing potential tracts available for oil and gas leases. These leases were offered by the Department of the Interior, based on the Outer Continental Shelf Land Act of 1953. This map shows the location of blowouts, explosions and fires, significant pollution incidents, major accidents, offshore platforms, ports, and the Intracoastal Waterway. Features shown on the coast include airports, oil and gas pipelines, gas processing plants, oil refineries, railroads, and highways. See accompanying pamphlet for information about this sale, and the overlay grid map to determine the tracts available for lease. Both can be found under map # 6497.
